English Poetry. William Watson. Nay, Bid Me Not My Cares to Leave. Уильям Уотсон.

William Watson (Уильям Уотсон)

* * *

Nay, bid me not my cares to leave,
  Who cannot from their shadow flee.
I do but win a short reprieve,
  'Scaping to pleasure and to thee.

I may, at best, a moment's grace,
  And grant of liberty, obtain;
Respited for a little space,
  To go back into bonds again.
