' N E evemnf fair, the zephyrs blew,
An Urchin had his fancy.
Then from his bow a fhafc he drew,
T« wound my heart with——Nancy.
II. c ^
The fair one's charms I Arove to IhuBt
In dreams Ihe pleas'd my fancy.
But like the night's departing fun,
The mom was So with N ancr.
Then on my pillow I did moan.
Found phantoms were all fancy |
As Phoebus then did eaftward roam,
I took my leave of Nancy.
Her two black eyes like brilliants bright,
V/ill ever plcafe my fancy—
Her arch’d black brows—her red and white-
Ch! what a lovely Nancy 1
My hand and heart I'd have her talce,
If I could pleafe ter fancy j
And change her name to minei^om ^(t****,
And join the dcarcA Nancy -I
On an ill-natured WOMAN.
A WRETCH who triumphs o'er her neighbours woe,
A friend to difcord, and to peace a fue;
Revenge her pleafure—mifchief her delight,
Foreverfnarls—forever tries to bite }
Never in temper, always out of tune/* '
The fame at night. In morning, and at noon.'
If fuch a creature In the world there be,
"Who will not gucfs that muft be flic.
A frown eternal on her brow fhe wears,
And dire ill-nature in her face appears j
Others are taught by nature or by art,
With looks ferene to hide a baneful heart ;
But thy black foul we in thy village fee.
And all tlie pstil ftands confefs'd in this.
