Poem by William Cowper
No Sorrow Peculiar to the Sufferer
The lover, in melodious verses, His singular distress rehearses; Still closing with a rueful cry, 'Was ever such a wretch as I!' Yes! thousands have endured before All thy distress; some, haply, more. UnnumberТd Corydons complain, And Strephons, of the like disdain; And if thy Chloe be of steel, Too deaf to hear, too hard to feel; Not her alone that censure fits, Nor thou alone hast lost thy wits.
