Magdalene College - Pepys 3.159
 
A New SONG of a Fickle and Unconstant LOVER, / Who gave her Sweetheart the occasion of writing these following Lines. / Dissembling Lovers ought to be abhor'd, / As constant Lovers ought to be ador'd: / A faithful Lover I will crown with fame, / But faithless Lovers will be crown'd shame. / A Lover like to mine all mortals hate; / But the true Lover shou'd not meet ill fate: / To her whose love and whose affection's true, / My Knees, as [at an Altar], still shall bow.
