    Cruel Remorse! where Youth and Pleasure sport,
    And thoughtless Folly keeps her court,--
    Crouching 'midst rosy bowers thou lurk'st unseen
    Slumbering the festal hours away,
    While Youth disports in that enchanting scene;
    Till on some fated day
    Thou with a tiger-spring dost leap upon thy prey,
    And tear his helpless breast, o'erwhelmed with wild dismay.

Remorse is as the heart in which it grows;
If that be gentle, it drops balmy dews
Of true repentance; but if proud and gloomy,
It is the poison tree, that pierced to the inmost,
Weeps only tears of poison.
