SIGHS
[ Also see Desolation Grief Heart Language Love Sorrow Wooing ]

Sighed and wept and said no more.
      - Unattributed Author, Isle of Ladies
         (l. 929),
        probably written in mid-15th century, erroneously attributed to Chaucer as "Dreame"

He sighed;--the next resource is the full moon,
  Where all sighs are deposited; and now
    It happen'd luckily, the chaste orb shone.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Sigh'd and look'd, and sigh'd again.
      - John Dryden, Alexander's Feast (l. 120)

Implores the passing tribute of a sigh.
      - Thomas Gray, Elegy in a Country Churchyard
         (st. 20)

To sigh, yet feel no pain,
  To weep, yet scarce know why;
    To sport an hour with Beauty's chain,
      Then throw it idly by.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Songs from M.P.; or, The Blue Stocking

My soul has rest, sweet sigh! alone in thee.
      - Francesco Petrarch,
        To Laura in Death--Sonnet LIV (l. 14)

Sped the soft intercourse from soul to soul,
  And waft a sigh from Indus to the Pole.
      - Alexander Pope

Oh, if you knew the pensive pleasure
  That fills my bosom when I sigh,
    You would not rob me of a treasure
      Monarchs are too poor to buy.
      - Samuel Rogers, To ----- (st. 2)

Yet sighes, deare sighes, indeeds true friends you are
  That do not leave your left friend at the wurst,
    But, as you with my breast, I oft have nurst
      So, gratefull now, you waite upon my care.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney), Sighes

Sighs
  Which perfect Joy, perplexed for utterance,
    Stole from her sister Sorrow.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        The Gardner's Daughter (l. 249)
