The Enchantment

Thomas Otway

I did but look and love awhile, 
   'Twas but for one half-hour; 
Then to resist I had no will, 
   And now I have no power. 

To sigh and wish is all my ease; 
   Sighs which do heat impart 
Enough to melt the coldest ice, 
   Yet cannot warm your heart. 

O would your pity give my heart 
   One corner of your breast, 
'Twould learn of yours the winning art, 
   And quickly steal the rest.
