Too happy rival dwell not there
To rack my heart with jealous care,
But quit the blest abode, tho’loth,
And quickly passing, cafe us both,

SONG

WH

HEN Fanny blooming fair

First caught my ravish'd fight, Struck with her fhape and air,

I felt a strange delight : Whilst eagerly I gaz’d,

Admiring ev'ry part, And ev'ry feature prais'd,

She stole into my heart.

1

In her bewitching eyes

Ten thousand loves appear ; There Cupid balking lies,

His shafts are hoarded there, Her blooming cheeks are dy'd

With colour all their own, Excelling far the pride

Of roses newly blown.

Her well-turn'd limbs confess,

The lucky hand of Jove; Her features all express

The beauteous queen of love :

W Henever, Chloe, I begin

, Your heart like mine to move, You tell me of the crying fin

Of unchaste lawless love.

How can that passion be a fin,

Which gave to Chloe birth? How can those joys but be divine,

Which make a heaven on earth ?

То

To wed, mankind the priest trepanna,

By some fly fallacy,
And disobey'd God's great command,

Increase and multiply.

You say that love's a crime; content:

Yet this allow you must,
More joy's in heav'n if one repent,

Than over ninety just.

Sin then, dear girl, for heaven's fake,

Repent and be forgiven;
Bless me, and by repentance make

A holy day in heav'n.
