The Young-Mans Complaint for / The Loss of his Mistris. / Young-men you see my Fortune is such, / I have lost my Love by loving her too much: / My fortune's bad as other Young mens be, / Read but these Lines, and you shall Plainly see: / I being bashful, she did me quite forgo, / I have lost my dear Mistris by being too slow.
