The Execration by Elizabeth Thomas

Enslaved by passions, swelled with pride,
In love with one whom all deride;
A carcase well, yet mind in pain,
Reduced to beg, but beg in vain;
To live reserved and free from blame,
And yet incur an evil fame:
Let this! this be the wretched fate
Of Rosalinda, whom I hate.

Elizabeth Thomas
1675-1731
