ANOTHER.

1 Since this day comes but once a year,
2 Let ev'ry joy with it appear.
3 Come then, and let us laugh and sport,
4 And merry be it, tho' 'tis short.
5 Nor will I, Stella, now advise;
6 A word's sufficient to the wise.
7 Yet Beauty's reign, the learned say,
8 Is shorter than the shortest day.
