Seite 351 - Sighing]. — Alas ! how many are the obstacles to the accomplishment of our wishes ! Albeit she did coyly turn away Her glowing cheek, and with her fingers guard Her pouting lips, that murmured a denial In faltering accents, she did yield herself A sweet reluctant captive to my will, As eagerly I raised her lovely face : But ere with gentle force I stole the kiss, Too envious Fate did mar my daring purpose.
