A Song (Give me leave to rail at you)
I. Give me leave to rail at you, I ask nothing but my due; To call you false, and then to say You shall not keep my Heart a Day. But, alas! against my Will, I must be your Captive still. Ah! be kinder then; for I Cannot change, and would not die. II. Kindness has resistless Charms, All besides but weakly move; Fiercest Anger it disarms, And clips the Wings of flying Love. Beauty does the Heart invade, Kindness only can persuade; It gilds the Lover's Servile Chain, And makes the Slaves grow pleas'd again.
