No Ring, no VVedding; / A merry new Song of the wooing there was, / 'Twixt a zealous Youngman, and a Cavalier Lasse, / He woos (and would wed) she will have no such thing, / Unlesse she may married be with a Ring / Have Ribons, and Gloves, Rosemary, and Baves, / And all things that were in her fore-Fathers dayes.
