    Like the bubble on the fountain,
    Thou are gone, and for ever!

What you lend is lost; when you ask for it back, you may find a

My own less bitter, rather more:
Too common! Never morning read more

My own less bitter, rather more:
Too common! Never morning wore
To evening, but some heart did break.
