Matthew Prior (Мэтью Прайор)


A Dutch Proverb


Fire, Water, Woman, are Man's Ruin;
Says wise Professor Vander Bruin.
By Flames a House I hir'd was lost
Last Year: and I must pay the Cost.
This Spring the Rains o'erflow'd my Ground:
And my best Flanders Mare was drown'd.
A Slave I am to Clara's Eyes:
The Gipsey knows her Pow'r, and flies.
Fire, Water, Woman, are My Ruin:
And great Thy Wisdom, Vander Bruin. 



Matthew Prior's other poems:
  1. To the Lady Dursley
  2. Wives by the Dozen
  3. Cloe Jealous
  4. On My Birthday, July 21
  5. Chaste Florimel
