Poem by Mary Wortley Montagu


Impromptu, to a Young Lady Singing


Sing, gentle maid Ч reform my breast,
And soften all my care;
Thus may I be some moments blest,
And easy in despair.
The pow'r of Orpheus lives in you;
You can the passions of my soul subdue,
And tame the lions and the tigers there.
