The Amorist.

1 SEe where enammour'd Thirsis lies,
2 And cannot cease to gaze
3 On his Larissa's sparkling Eyes,
4 But takes Delight to see those Comets Blaze;
5 Whose Lustre still is Fatal to the Swain,
6 Ore whom they Reign,
7 For by their Influence the poor Shepheard Dies,
8 Or (more to be Lamented) Lives in Pain.
