The Northern Ladd: / OR, The Fair Maids Choice, / Who Refus'd all for a Plowman, counting her self therein most Happy. / A Country Lass who many suitors had, / Some good, some mean, the worst of them not bad; / A Weaver, Taylor, Shoo-maker, first came, / With many more of ample note and fame: / A Barber, Baker, Miller, and the like, / Yet unto none of those her Sails she'd strike: / But in a Rustick she is only pleas'd, A Plowman only has her fancy eas'd.
