Lord Byron (1788–1824).  Poetry of Byron.  1881.
 
I. Personal, Lyric, and Elegiac
Lines to a Lady Weeping
 
WEEP, daughter 1 of a royal line,
  A Sire’s disgrace, a realm’s decay;
Ah! happy if each tear of thine
  Could wash a father’s fault away!
 
Weep—for thy tears are Virtue’s tears—        5
  Auspicious to these suffering isles;
And be each drop in future years
  Repaid thee by thy people’s smiles!
 
Note 1. The Princess Charlotte. [back]
