And look on Spirits breathed away,
As on a maiden in the day
When first she wears her orange-flower!
crown’d with blessing she doth rise
doubtful joys the father move,
office there to rear, to teach,
doubtless, unto thee is given
me, the difference I discern!
tell them all they would have told,
thou and I have shaken hands,
