To Love Mounting
"What! The girl I adore by another embraced!
What! The balin? Of her breath shall another man taste?
What! Pressed in the whirl by another bold knee!
What panting recline on another than me!
Sir, she's yours. You have brushed from the grap its soft blue,
From the rose bud you've shaken the tremulous dew.
What you touch you may take - pretty waltzer adieu."
In return for your Lordship's kindness I send you lines which I think not bad, certainly not the worse for being on my own side or view of the subject
