"Go, false one% quaff the sparkling wine,/ Let blushing morn still find thee/ To lips more lovely pressing thine,--/ Oaths were not made to bind thee%/ Thy brow with gaudiest wreaths adorn;/ but ere the revel closes,/ Beware of many a lurking thorn/ Amidst the withered roses. Go--mock these burning tears that fall/ For fond devotion slighted--/ Exult, if memory recall,/ Thy vow was falsly plighted:/ Away--to others pledge that vow/ To me thus idly spoken;/ The heart so lightly valued now/ Thou'lt prize perchance--when broken." [Pp. 11-12.]
