ADDRESS TO THE WINDS.

SUPPOSED TO BE WRITTEN BY A LADY DURING THE ABSENCE OF HER LOVER.

TO MISS MUNROE.

1 YE ruthless winds, whose boist'rous sweep
2 Awakes to rage the boiling deep;
3 Who mock the seaman's fruitless toil,
4 And Ocean glut with frequent spoil;
5 To me restore the favour'd youth,
6 Who, kneeling, vow'd eternal truth;
7 Whose tender tale, devoid of art,
8 Has charm'd my soul, and won my heart;
9 O! swift from India's venal strand,
10 Conduct him to his native land;
11 His wealth to you I here resign,
12 His tender heart alone be mine.
