Absent from thee, I languish still
Ae fond kiss, and then we sever
A fox, in life's extreme decay
Ah, what a weary race my feet have run
All human things are subject to decay .
* All in the Downs the fleet was moored
All my past life is mine no more .
A milk-white Hind, immortal and unchanged
And did those feet in ancient time
And now, reduced on equal terms to fight
An thou were my ain thing
Arcite returned, and as in honour tied
As once-if not with light regard
dwake, Æolian lyre, awake
Awake, my St. Johnl leave all meaner things

Before the passing bell begun
“Before the Word was written," said the Hind
Behind yon hills where Lugar flows
Behold in awful march and dread array
Beneath the south side of a craigy bield
Beneath yon ruined abbey's moss-grown piles
But see! the fading many-coloured woods
By Nature's law, what may be may be now
By the blue taper's trembling light

Daughter of Jove, relentless power
Dear Chloe, how blubbered is that pretty face
Dear Thomas, didst thou never pop
Dim as the borrowed beams of moon and stars
Doeg, though without knowing how or why
Dorinda's sparkling wit and eyes
Duncan Gray cam here to woo

Each rising art by just gradation moves
Edina, Scotia's darling seat
Exert thy voice, sweet harbinger of Spring

Fair Amoret is gone astray
Fair tree, for thy delightful shade
Farewell, ungrateful traitor
Far in a wild, unknown to public view .
First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
First in these fields I try the sylvan strains
For auld lang syne, my dear
Forced by soft violence of pray'r .
For his long absence Church and State did groan
Frae fields whare Spring her sweets has blawn
