I-
-
Had I a cave on some wild distant shoreB
Where the winds howl to the waves' dashing roarB
There would I weep my woesC
There seek my lost reposeC
Till grief my eyes should closeD
Ne'er to wake moreB
-
II-
-
Falsest of womankind canst thou declareA
All thy fond plighted vows fleeting as airA
To thy new lover hieE
Laugh o'er thy perjuryF
Then in thy bosom try-
What peace is thereA
