Lady Mary Wortley Montagu


Impromptu, To A Young Lady Singing - Poem by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

Sing, gentle maid -- reform my breast,
And soften all my care;
Thus may I be some moments blest,
And easy in despair.
The pow'r of Orpheus lives in you;
You can the passions of my soul subdue,
And tame the lions and the tigers there.
