Poem by Thomas Moore


From The Odes of Anacreon. Ode 10


How am I to punish thee,
For the wrong thoust done to me,
Silly swallow, prating thing 
Shall I clip that wheeling wing,
Or, as Tereus did, of old,
(So the fabled tale is told,)
Shall I tear that tongue away,
Tongue that utterd such a lay?
Ah, how thoughtless hast thou been!
Long before the dawn was seen,
When a dream came oer my mind,
Picturing her I worship, kind,
Just when I was nearly blest,
Loud thy matins broke my rest!
