LOVES EMPIRE, / OR, / The Happy State of true Lovers. / Being a most pleasant and Delightful New Play SONG. / When Earth was made in the first age of Men, / Love, that's now Art, mov'd all by nature then; / Simplicity in love was then their pride, / No cunning Artifice they had to hide / A generous passion, which did freely flow / But now 'tis Gold that governs all below: / More is the pitty, yet we here may find, / Vertue out-do it, and to Lovers kind.
