Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Love - Complaints

Who would not be a poet, when
The girl he loves is sweet and kind,
And fancies burn and tickle;
When both his Love and Muse are true,
And neither one is fickle?

And if there is but one that's true,
To smile or prattle, kiss or sing,
He will not scorn the other;
But take a joy that's half complete,
As poet, or as lover.

But when the both of them are false,
His sweetheart turned contrary,
And Thought still sulks from Word —
Who'll praise him for his peevish chirps?
Who wants that moulting bird?
