’Tis strange, this Heart within my breast,
Reason opposing, and her Pow’rs,
Cannot one gentle Moment rest,
Unless it knows what’s done in Yours.
In vain I ask it of your Eyes,
Which subt’ly wou’d my Fears controul;
For Art has taught them to disguise,
Which Nature made t’ explain the Soul.
In vain that Sound, your Voice affords,
Flatters sometimes my easy Mind;
But of too vast Extent are Words
In them the Jewel Truth to find.
Then let my fond Enquiries cease,
And so let all my Troubles end:
For, sure, that Heart shall ne’er know Peace,
Which on Anothers do’s depend.
