Lord John Wilmot
Oxfordshire / England

Constancy

Rating: 3.3
I cannot change, as others do,
Though you unjustly scorn;
Since that poor swain, that sighs for you
For you alone was born.
No, Phyllis, no, your heart to move
A surer way I'll try:
And to revenge my slighted love,
Will still love on, will still love on, and die.

When, kill'd with grief, Amyntas lies;
And you to mind shall call
The sighs that now unpitied rise;
The tears that vainly fall:
That welcome hour that ends this smart,
Will then begin your pain;
For such a faithful, tender heart
Can never break, can never break in vain.

The opening statement of the poem is interesting and eye catching. The rest of the lines flow down so eloquently! 'Broken heart is always a popular theme' - Well said @Savita Tyagi, I agree with you fully.
