The Power and Pleasure of Love. / Is here describ'd an Antidote of joy, / Against all grief, which doth the heart annoy; / For the greatest Monarch, Clown, and Fool, / Loves power doth conquer, and keeps all in rule: / And those who Love, and kind and constant be, / Live in a continued Extasie; / But those who do in sorrows constant dwell, / Were ne'r in Love, and can't it's pleasure tell.
