See where with rapid bound the fawn affrighted,
Swift thro' the forest hieth,
Scared by the breezes thro' the branches sighing,
Or murmurs from the rippling streams replying;
So Clora, all my amorous suit disdaining,
With rapid footsteps flieth;
Her devious path I trace, with spirits failing,
Hoping to find her; Alas! 'tis unavailing;
Vain all the arts I use; she hath no pity;
O'er hill and valley still she boundeth,
With Clora's name the grove resoundeth,
But only echo mocks my plaintive ditty.
