PROPOSALS
[ Also see Courtship ]

On you, most loved, with anxious fear I wait,
  And from your judgment must expect my fate.
      - Joseph Addison

By those tresses unconfin'd,
  Woo'd by very gentle wind;
    By those lids whose jetty fringe
      Kiss thy soft cheek's blooming tinge;
        By those wild eyes, like the roe,
          Ah! hear my vow before I go--
            My dearest life, I love thee!
              Can I cease to love thee?--no!
                Zoe mous s-as ogapo.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Yet, it is love--if thoughts of tenderness,
  Tried in temptation, strengthened by distress,
    Unmov'd by absence, firm in every clime,
      And yet--oh! more than all!--untir'd by time.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

To prevail in the cause that is dearer than life,
  Or, crush'd in its ruins, to die!
      - Thomas Campbell

She listen'd with a flitting blush,
  With downcast eyes, and modest grace,
    For well she knew I could not choose
      But gaze upon her face.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Have I not managed my contrivance well
  To try your love and make you doubt of mine?
      - John Dryden

Take my esteem, if you on that can live,
  For frankly, sir, 'tis all I have to give.
      - John Dryden

This hand, I cannot but in death resign!
      - John Dryden

On your hand, that pure altar, I vow,
  Though I've look'd and have lik'd, and have felt--
    That I never have lov'd--till now.
      - Matthew Gregory Lewis ("Monk Lewis")

Here still is the smile that no cloud can o'ercast,
  And the heart, and the hand, all thy own to the last.
      - Thomas Moore

Thinkest thou
  That I could live, and let thee go,
    Who art my life itself?--no--no.
      - Thomas Moore

'Tis not in fate to harm me,
  While fate leaves thy love to me;
    'Tis not in joy to charm me,
      Unless that joy be shar'd with thee.
      - Thomas Moore

'Tis you, alone, can save, or give my doom.
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

The very thoughts of change I hate,
  As much as of despair;
    Nor ever covet to be great,
      Unless it be for her.
      - Thomas Parnell

For ever thine, whate'er this world betide,
  In youth, in age, thine own, for ever thine.
      - Alaric Alexander Watts

Where heart meets heart, reciprocally soft,
  Each other's pillow to repose divine.
      - Edward Young
