"In these deep solitudes and awful cells,/ Where heavenly pensive contemplation dwells,/ And ever musing melancholy reigns,/ What means this tumult in a vestal's veins*/ Why rove my thoughts beyond their last retreat*/ why feels my heart its long forgotten beat*/ Yet, yet I love. From Abelard it came,/ And Eloisa yet must kiss the name." Pope's Epistle of Eloisa to Abelard. [P. 7.]
