Ballad Title The Loves of / Damon and Sappho: / OR: The Shepherd Crown'd with good success. / You Lovers all that would successful be; / Be not too bashful, but in Love be free: / Time but your passion and you'l never fail, / There is a time when you'l be sure prevail. / Maids will deny, its true, but soon will yield, / If once you charge, they soon will lose the Field: / Though they deny, it is but for fashion, / For when they do, they have the greatest passion.
