Odes Of Anacreon: Cupid, whose lamp has lent the ray...

Cupid, whose lamp has lent the ray...

by Thomas Moore

Cupid, whose lamp has lent the ray
Which lightens our meandering way,
Cupid within my bosom stealing,
Excites a strange and mingled feeling,
Which pleases, though severely teasing,
And teases, though divinely pleasing!
