Strephon and Clea: / OR, / Love in its Prime: / BEING / The Happy Shepherd and Lovely Nymph: / The timourous Nymph at last does yield to Love, / And finds it next to Joys Incence above, / The only Sollace of the Soul, such Joys, / Flowing from thence, as all sad Care Destroys: / Long in kind Strephons Arms she panting lay, / 'Twixt Sighs and Smiles, well pleased with wanton play: / Till both to feed their Bleating Flocks do rise, / Not tyr'd with love, for Lovers that ne'r Cloys.
