To Miss Creuze on her birthday

How many between East and West

Disgrace their parent earth,

Whose deeds constrain us to detest

The day that gave them birth!


Not so, when Stella's natal morn

Revolving months restore,

We can rejoice that She was born,

And wish her born once more.

By William Cowper, 1780
