Robert Craggs, Earl Nugent (Роберт Крэггз, граф Ньюджент)


Epigram 12. WE thought you without titles great


WE thought you without titles great,
And wealthy with a small estate;
While by your humble self alone,
You seem unrated and unknown.
But now on fortune's swelling tide
High-borne, in all the pomp of pride;
Of grandeur vain and fond of pelf,
'Tis plain, my lord, you knew yourself.

  3. Epigram 3. MY heart still hovering round about you
  4. Epigram 7. I Swore I lov'd, and you believ'd
