A New collections of songs and poems by Thomas D'Urfey ...
D'Urfey, Thomas, 1653-1723.
The Serenade, a Song in the Injured Princess or a fatal wager, set by Captain Pack.
THe Larks awake the drouzy morn,
My dearest lovely Chloe rise,
And with thy dazling Rays adorn
The Ample World and Azure Skies:
Each eye of thine out-shines the Sun,
Though deckt in all his light,
As much as he excells the Moon,
Or each small twinkling Star at Noon,
Or Meteor of the Night.
Look down and see your Beauty's power,
See, see the heart in which you raign;
No Conquer'd slave in Triumph bore
Did ever wear so strong a Chain:
Feed me with smiles that I may live,
I'le ne're wish to be free;
Nor ever hope for kind Reprieve,
Or Loves gratefull bondage leave
