Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Prized
 
I prized every hour that went by,
  Beyond all that had pleased me before;
But now they are past, and I sigh,
  And I grieve that I prized them no more.
  1
When forced the fair nymph to forego,
  What anguish I felt at my heart!
Yet I thought—but it might not be so,
  ’Twas with pain that she saw me depart.
  2
She gazed as I slowly withdrew,
  My path I could hardly discern;
So sweetly she bade me adieu,
  I thought that she bade me return.
        Shenstone.—Pastoral Ballad, Part I.
