This piece is intended to be a riposte, and a pendant, to Stevens' Ask't thou how long my love shall stay.

Lyrics: Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Think'st thou, my Damon, I'd forego
This tender luxury of woe,
Which better than the tongue imparts
The feelings of impassion'd hearts?
Blest if my sighs and tears but prove
The winds and waves that waft to love.

Can true affection cease to fear?
Poor is the joy not worth a tear,
Did passion ever know content?
How weak the rapture words can paint.
Then let my sighs and tears but prove
The winds and waves that waft to love.

Richard John Samuel Stevens
(1757 - 1837)

Think'st thou, my Damon, I'd forego
