Loud are yor truinpois and sharp are your weapons ; ATiat do you Jinow of a fair M-omanV wiles, TbQ inight of her cimning, the strengtk of her wcakness, Or the miBchiof that lurks in her soft little fliuiles? Hearken, O Winter ! No prophet ís nneded - sJii-'U oonqner you Ih-Ht, theu uhe'U wcep o'er your bier ; Her tear-drope ín falliHR wilt bring forth the nwn, And the world will forget that you evrr were herc. riot and rage, for yniir down f all i coming ; A word in your ear, O ray blUHteriug friend- Your beard telle your sex, but swect airing íb a woman, And the world knows full welï how Biich conflict all end.
