Literary Gazette, 26th June, 1824, Page 411


This is enough! this broken heart
    Is fitting gift for me;
I would it had the voice to speak
    All it should say to thee.

Last year I sent the brightest gems
    To hail thy natal day;
They told my love,—this broken heart
    May speak as much as they.

And when it shall be thrown aside,
    Unprized by thee or thine,
You will but only waste this heart,
    As you have wasted mine! L. E. L.
