Treasure Island

Thomas Shadwell

(1642 - 1692 / England)

Dear Pretty Youth


Dear pretty youth, unveil your eyes,
How can you sleep when I am by?
Were I with you all night to be,
Methinks I could from sleep be free.
Alas, my dear, you're cold as stone:
You must no longer lie alone.
But be with me my dear, and I in each arm
Will hug you close and keep you warm.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
