The Seamans adieu to his Dear. / This Man was prest to serve upon the Seas. / Which did his Dearest very sore displease, / She importun'd the Captain on her knee, / And proffered gold to have her love set free, / But all would not prevaile, The Captains ear / VVas deaf, the Maids complaints he would not hear, / VVhen no entreaty could move his hard heart, / She sadly tooke her leave and so they part.
