With rosos laden from neighboring bowors,
El8o whonco this pretty wrouth of flowers?
Your swoot simplicity in dross
Hath tangled youth in many a mess.
Tho luokloss boy knows not thy heart,
Thy stillf ul oyos, thy knowing art;
But happy, hopes thy lovo to hold.
Rash youth! In tirao ho will grow old,
And, having plunged in seas of lovo,
Swim out, and placo his coat above
Tho temple door. Brino soaked It hangs
To warn wild youth that "love hath pangs."
