The Loving Lad, / AND, / The Coy Lasse. / Or, a new Dialogue between two young Lovers. / The Youth did love the Girle entirely well, / But she (because her beauty did excell,) / Seem'd nice and coy, as Virgins use to bee, / And yet at last they both did well agree: / The match was finisht but on such condition, / That she might fully know his disposition / Therefore she did injoyne him not to marry, / But for her sake, full seven years space to tarry: / And then she is resolv'd (to end all strife,) / She'l be his faithful, constant, loving Wife.
