To the same with a New Watch.

1 WITH me while present, may thy lovely eyes
2 Be never turn'd upon this golden toy:
3 Think ev'ry pleasing hour too swiftly flies,
4 And measure time, by joy succeeding joy.
5 But when the cares that interrupt our bliss
6 To me not always will thy sight allow,
7 Then oft with kind impatience look on this,
8 Then every minute count as I do now.
