Poem by Robert Craggs, Earl Nugent

Epigram 10. WHILE Lucy, chaste as mountain snows

WHILE Lucy, chaste as mountain snows,
Gives every idle fop a hearing;
In Mary's breast a passion glows,
Which stronger is from not appearing.
Say, who has chose the better part!
Mary to whom no joy is missing;
Or she, who dupe to her own heart,
Pays the full price of Mary's kissing.
