Sir Charles Sedley Poems

  • Love Still Has Something Of The Sea
    Love still has something of the sea,
    From whence his Mother rose;
    No time his slaves from doubt can free,
    Nor give their thoughts repose. ...
  • The Knotting Song
    "Hears not my Phyllis how the birds
    Their feathered mates salute?
    They tell their passion in their words:
    Must I alone be mute?" ...
  • Phyllis Is My Only Joy
    Phyllis is my only joy,
    Faithless as the winds or seas;
    Sometimes coming, sometimes coy,
    Yet she never fails to please;...
  • To Cloris
    Cloris, I cannot say your eyes
    Did my unwary heart surprise;
    Nor will I swear it was your face,
    Your shape, or any nameless grace: ...
  • Child And Maiden
    Ah, Chloris! could I now but sit
    As unconcern'd as when
    Your infant beauty could beget
    No happiness or pain!...

Now lithe ye all and hark
Unto a ballad I shall sing
