The Willow Green turned / into White; Or, The Young mans Joy and the Maids Delight. / Being the Maids kind and Loving Answer to the distressed Lovers Complaint. / Wherein she plainly shews in every part, / How he is the Man that doth enjoy her heart, / Though first she seem'd disloyal for to prove, / Was only but to try his constant Love; / But now most lovingly unto him she is seen, / & bids him never fear wearing the Willow Green.
