To the Gods
Anonymous
 
[The Port Folio. Vol. I. 1801.]

YE gods, who sit and live at rest,
    Attend to hear my wishes;
I’m in a hurry to be blest,
    So, pray, be expeditious.
 
Grant me—let’s see—now, if you please,        5
    This very moment grant—
Plague take it—how vexatious this!
    I can’t think what I want.
