Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Hail, lovely shade, where my love-stricken mind
Sought fond relief in thinking of my love.
In those bless'd hours, what rapture did I find;
How sweet, but ah, how swiftly did they move.
How fondly did I love! Sure from her eye
Love sent the sharpest arrows in his store;
Ah, foolish heart, why heaves th'unbidden sigh?
Ah, hast thou forgot thou lov'st her now no more?
