Song (Sylvia The Fair, In The Bloom Of Fifteen) Analysis



Author: poem of John Dryden Type: poem Views: 14

Sylvia the fair, in the bloom of fifteen,

Felt an innocent warmth as she lay on the green:

She had heard of a pleasure, and something she guessed

By the towsing and tumbling and touching her breast:

She saw the men eager, but was at a loss

What they meant by their sighing and kissing so close;

By their praying and whining,

And clasping and twining,

And panting and wishing,

And sighing and kissing,

And sighing and kissing so close.



"Ah!" she cried, "ah, for a languishing maid

In a country of Christians to die without aid!

Not a Whig, or a Tory, or Trimmer at least,

Or a Protestant parson, or Catholic priest,

To instruct a young virgin that is at a loss

What they meant by their sighing and kissing so close;

By their praying and whining,

And clasping and twining,

And panting and wishing,

And sighing and kissing,

And sighing and kissing so close."



Cupid in shape of a swain did appear;

He saw the sad wound, and in pity drew near;

Then showed her his arrow, and bid her not fear,

For the pain was no more than a maiden may bear;

When the balm was infused, she was not at a loss

What they meant by their sighing and kissing so close;

By their praying and whining,

And clasping and twining,

And panting and wishing,

And sighing and kissing,

And sighing and kissing so close.
