    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.
