Ti mq Jufaut son.

Toy mother bade me weave a lay

A lay of love, for thee;
And I with willing mind obey,

Though tuneless all it be;
Though words but mock the fond excess
Of love, of hope, of tenderness,

Which thou hast wrought in me; And though my harp's degen’rate chords Faint echoes yield to powerless words.

O could my heart, flown to my tongue,

Dissolve itself in sound :
Or did my harp, now all unstrung,

With dulcet notes abound;
Then would I strike a chord should chain
The mind, and draw forth tears like rain,

When I am in the ground; But thou, should Heaven thy life prolong, May'st value e'en this rugged song.
