Recreations for Solitary Hours

A Love Sonnet

A Love Sonnet.

Written for a young Lady to her Lover, to whom she soon after got married.

Oh! Heaven, mark me from above,
Thus pledging undivided love
To him, my heart can most adore,
And whose affections I implore.
Believe me, Damon, I am true,
And still my heart is bent on you!
Time flies away as flies the wind—
Oh haste the hour when we'll be join'd,
When nothing shall us part but death,
Still loving to the latest breath.
Then oh be kind! my suit regard,
Love in return is love's reward;
So do accept, as I resign
My heart to thee my Valentine.
