Imitation of Molière

Miss Richardson

Si le Roi m’avoit donné

Mere wealth & power bestowed on me,
 E’en by King Henry’s hand;
And I must bid adieu to thee
 Must quit my native land.
King Henry’s richest gifts I’d spurn,
 For what is wealth to me?
The monarch from my lips should learn,
 That nought can equal thee.
