SPLEEN
[ Also see Malice ]

The spleen is seldom felt where Flora reigns;
  The low'ring eye, the petulance, the frown,
    And sullen sadness, that o'ershade, distort,
      And mar the face of beauty, when no cause
        For such immeasurable woe appears;
          These Flora banishes, and gives the fair
            Sweet smiles, and bloom less transient than her own.
      - William Cowper

Hail, wayward Queen!
  Who rule the sex to fifty from fifteen;
    Parent of vapors, and of female wit,
      Who give the hysteric, or poetic fit,
        On various tempers act by various ways,
          Make some take physic, others scribble plays:
            Who cause the proud their visits to delay,
              And send the godly in a pet to pray.
      - Alexander Pope
