WHEN Fanny · blooming fair

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

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

Admiring every part, And every feature prais'd, She stole into my

heart.

In her bewitching eyes

Ten thousand loves appear ; There Cupid basking lies,

His fhafts 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 :

a Supposed to be Lady Frances Shirley,

What

WHenever

, 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 births How can those joys but be divine,

Which make a heaven on earth?

To

To wed, mankind the priest trepann'd,

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 heaven.
