D'Urfey, Thomas, 1653-1723.

Another Song written at Epsom on Beauty.

BEauty, thou Throne of Graces,
Bright Queen of charming Faces;
Thou Soul of endless Passion,
Thou Tyrant of the Nation:
Page  41 Thou God that dost inflame us,
Thou Fury sent to damn us;
How happy should we be
Proud foe wer't not for thee?
II.
Numerous shining glories,
Adorn'd my Lovely Chloris;
Her Face was sweet as Summer,
Her Pride did well become her:
Her voice from Iove was given,
Each Angel flew from Heaven,
And smiling clapt his wing,
For Joy to hear her sing.
III.
My Soul was still admiring,
This falser than a Syren;
I strongly did besiege her,
But ne're durst disoblige her:
But she like Frosty weather,
Nipt all my Buds together;
And thinking me untrue,
My fond heart did undoe.
