On seeing Miss G-----ng with a nosegay in her breast

Delightful scene, in which appear
At once all the beauties of the year'
See how the zephyrs her breath
Fan gently the flow'r beneath.

See the gay flow'rs, how bright they glow
Tho' planted in a bed of snow;
Yet see how soon they fade and die,
Scorch'd with the sunshine of her eye;

No wonder if, o'ercome with bliss,
They droop their heads to steal a kiss.
Who would not die on that dear breast?
Who would not die to be so blest?
