Poem by Oliver Goldsmith


Song Intended to Have Been Sung in 'She Stoops to Conquer'


AH me! when shall I marry me?
Lovers are plenty; but fail to relieve me:
He, fond youth, that could carry me,
Offers to love, but means to deceive me.

But I will rally, and combat the ruiner:
Not a look, not a smile shall my passion discover:
She that gives all to the false one pursuing her,
Makes but a penitent, loses a lover. 



Oliver Goldsmith
