Like watchmen, round their chief appear :
To Cloe's lodging they directed : (At once I write, alas ! and weep, That Cloe is of theft fufpe&ted).
St. Dunstan's as they pass’d struck one.
Like footmen on a visiting-day.
Nor prayers, nor threats, divert their speed :
Three hours : for, all historians say,
O Cupid, is this right or law,
observ'd a fitting hare,
Viewing the towering falcon nigh?
When gazing on her midnight foes,
Incognito : for Susan said,
Of Venus for an episode :
Go freely search where-e'er you please
Through wardrobe and through closet bounces ;
So to the bed returns again :
Your poultry cannot yer be found :
And Cynthia, dear protectress, guard me:
head: hold up your hand :
Or by an emulous pride invited,
Rais'd just above the milk-white sheet;
And widows court? is not your name
Or do with her you call your mother?
Witness that what I speak is true :
