“One Evening to Kiss”
(From Bristol Drollery, c. 1674)

  ONE Evening to kiss
  I walk’d with my Miss,
And straight to a Grove we came;
  Where in the cool shade
  We sported and played        5
  And eased us of our flame,
But oh, then how her eyes did discover,
The delight she receiv’d from her Lover.
  The Dew ’gan to fall
  And the night birds to call,        10
So homewards went Chloris and I,
  To speak of our Joys,
  And such other toys,
  Would make your Love Passions run high:
But oh, how her eyes her delight did discover,        15
While I played the part of a hot-mettled Lover.
