Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


The flocks shall leave the mountains,
The woods the turtle-dove;
The nymphs forsake the fountains,
Ere I forsake my love.
Gay.—Acis and Galatea, Part II. Trio.

My God, my father, and my friend,
Do not forsake me at my end!
Roscommon.—His last words on his death-bed. See Fenton’s Ed. of Waller’s Poems.
