Literary Gazette, 2nd August 1823, Page 490
Oh never throw thy love away
Upon a heart like mine,
The rose's leaf, the blue sea-spray,
Would be a safer shrine.
The rose's leaf will fade when blown,
The spray pass from the sea;
But neither are so quickly gone
As love that trusts to me.
For e'en if love could touch my heart,
Now free as yonder wave,
It would a meteor fire depart,
Its very birth its grave.
Chain winds that pass from flower to flower,
And bid them cease to rove,
And then I will believe your power
Even to fix my love.
