William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Georgian Verse.  1909.
 
Absence
By Richard Jago (1715–1781)
 
WITH leaden foot Time creeps along
  While Delia is away:
With her, nor plaintive was the song,
  Nor tedious was the day.
 
Ah, envious Power! reverse my doom;        5
  Now double thy career,
Strain every nerve, stretch every plume,
  And rest them when she’s here!
