With leaden foot Time creeps along
...While Delia is away:
With her, nor plaintive was the song,
...Nor tedious was the day.
Ah, envious Pow'r! reverse my doom;
...Now double thy career,
Strain ev'ry nerve, stretch ev'ry plume,
...And rest them when she's here!
.....Absence by Richard Jago (1715-81)
