Song: ‘See, see, she wakes, Sabina wakes!’
By William Congreve (1670–1729)
SEE, see, she wakes, Sabina wakes!
  And now the sun begins to rise;
Less glorious is the morn that breaks
  From his bright beams, than her fair eyes.
With light united, day they give,        5
  But different fates ere night fulfil;
How many by his warmth will live!
  How many will her coldness kill!
