1 VAIN Love, why do'st thou boast of Wings,
2 That cannot help thee to retire!
3 When such quick Flames Suspicion brings,
4 As do the Heart about thee fire.
5 Still Swift to come, but when to go
6 Thou shou'd'st be more Alas! how Slow.
7 Lord of the World must surely be
8 But thy bare Title at the most;
9 Since Jealousy is Lord of Thee,
10 And makes such Havock on thy Coast,
11 As do's thy pleasant Land deface,
12 Yet binds thee faster to the Place.
