DT Lyrics:

Subject: Chloe's Eyes
From: Jerry
Date: 01 Nov 99 - 03:29 PM

I've got this part of a song and am looking for more verses and a tune, and any background. The seas their wonders might reveal/ But Chloe's eyes have more:/ Not all the treasure they conceal,/ Can equal mine on shore.// From native Ireland's temperate coast/ Remove me farther yet,/ To shiver in eternal frost,/ Or melt in India's heat.//

Much obliged for any assistance you can render.

Loud was the wind, and rough the main,
But life was past my care ;
I thought of absence, and disdain,
And felt no storm but there.

The seas their wonders might reveal,
But Chloe's eyes have more ;
Nor all the treasure they conceal
Can equal mine on shore.

From native Britain's temperate coast
Remove me farther yet,
To shiver in eternal frost,
Or melt with India's heat.

Her image shall my days beguile,
And still my dream shall be
The tuneful voice, and tender smile,
Though ne'er vouchsaf'd to me.

JAMES RALPH (1705 ?-1762)
