483. Esteem for Chloris
 
 
AH, Chloris, since it may not be,
  That thou of love wilt hear;
If from the lover thou maun flee,
  Yet let the friend be dear.
 
Altho’ I love my Chloris mair        5
  Than ever tongue could tell;
My passion I will ne’er declare—
  I’ll say, I wish thee well.
 
Tho’ a’ my daily care thou art,
  And a’ my nightly dream,        10
I’ll hide the struggle in my heart,
  And say it is esteem.
