Zephyr, with thy downy wing
Sweep the bosom of each flow'r;
Mingled odours hither bring,
Delia sleeps within the bow'r.

Delia sleeps, yet still denies
Respite to her lover's smart;
Chases slumber from his eyes,
Pours fresh anguish on his heart.

Slumb'ring pride now drops her shield;
Dream, thy soft sensation prove;
Make the nymph to fancy yield
Transports she refus'd to love.
