This piece has a reply/pendant: Stevens' Think'st thou, my Damon, I'd forego.

Lyrics: Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Ask't thou how long my love should stay,
When all that's new is passed?
How long, ah Delia, can I say
How long my life will last?
Dry be that tear, be hush'd that sigh,
At least I'll love thee till I die.

And does that thought affect thee too,
The thought of Damon's death;
That he who only lives for you
Must yield his faithful breath.
Hush'd be that sigh, be dry that tear,
Nor let us lose our heaven here.

Richard John Samuel Stevens
(1757 - 1837)

Ask't thou how long my love shall stay
