Original text and translations
When Beauty such as yours has mov'd desires,
a kind return should raise the glowing fires.
But tho' you hate me
I am still devoted wholly to your will;
not all your frowns can quench my flame,
my Love is something more than name;
and as it ought, will ever, ever be the same.
