To Miss Creuze, on Her Birthday
By William Cowper
HOW many between east and west
  Disgrace their parent earth,
Whose deeds constrain us to detest
  The day that gave them birth!
Not so when Stella’s natal morn        5
  Revolving months restore,
We can rejoice that she was born,
  And wish her born once more!
