SONG, by            
First Line: Strephon has fashion, wit, and youth
Last Line: Returns into my breast.

Strephon has fashion, wit, and youth.
With all things else that please:
He nothing wants but love and truth,
To ruin me with ease.

But he is flint, and bears the art
To kindle stray desire;
His power inflames another's heart,
Yet he ne'er feels the fire.

Alas! it does my soul perplex,
When I his charms recall,
To think he should despise the sex,
Or what's worse, love them all.

My wearied heart, like Noah's dove,
In vain may seek for rest,
Finding no hope to fix my love,
Returns into my breast.
