A new Love-Song, and a true Love-Song. / Made of a Young Man and a Maiden fair, / Whose dwelling now is in Northamptonshire; / As they one evening late abroad was walking, / A young man lay unseen, and heard them talking: / To make their Complements to seem more sweeter, / Their words and actions he compos'd in Metre: / 'Twas well they honest prov'd in verity, / Because Tom-tell-truth chanc'd to be so nigh.
