On First Looking into Wilfred's Love

On First Looking into Wilfred's Love

O'er many College quartos have I pored,
And many pious poems and hymns perused;
Through many boring theses did I wade
Such as all students look upon with awe.

Oft have I lingered in those mazy realms.
Where deep-perplexing love strong sway doth hold;
Yet never did they much to me convey
Till Wilfred voiced his heart's experience.

Then felt I as some disillusioned spouse,
Who tastes the bitterness of fickle dreams,
Or as the politician, who at th' end

Of an election, feels defeat's sharp pang.
Yet such is life, and such it still shall be,
While on this earth we humans do remain.
