So with Life; the care and sorrow
Torture by fore-running fear:
Like the day is never here.
L.-Flirt on, flirt on, my gay coquette,
And I'll make my affidavit,
And none but fools will crave it.
G.–Wooing, wedding, and repenting !
L.—Though losses and crosses
Be lessons right severe,

The wise and active conquer difficulties,
Few here are happy but in part,
Full bliss is bliss divine ;
Which fate shall brightly gild, -
G.– Where the altar of religion
Greets the expectant bridal pair,
Vibrates on the sacred air ;

And in fancy oft is heaping
Rich gems and jewels of price untold,
Visions that end in weeping.
L.--He's mild as April showers, his heart is light and gay,
And like the lovely flowers 'tis blooming while it may.
G.–Her fancy loves to wander forth
And hover round the hearth,
That light that scene of mirth.
A dreary world like this;
To share life's social bliss.
Too sweet is her tone;
