What mad lover ever dy’d,
To gain a soft and gentle bride?
Or for a lady tender-hearted,
In purling streams or hemp departed?
        Butler.—Hudibras, Part III. Canto I. Line 23.
        And then the lover,
Sighing like a furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow.
        Shakespeare.—As You Like It, Act II. Scene 7. (Jaques to Duke S.)
        A sonnet quaint
Of Silvia’s shoe-string, or of Chloe’s fan,
Or sweetly-fashion’d tip of Celia’s ear.
        Shenstone.—Economy, Part III. Line 85.
Who shall give a lover any law?
        Chaucer.—Saunders, Vol. I. Page 20.
