Sweet Kate Of late Ran away and left me plaining. Abide! I cried, Or I die with thy disdaining. Te hee hee! Quoth she, Gladly would I see Any man to die with loving: Never any yet Died of such a fit; Neither have I fear of proving.
Unkind! I find Thy delight is in tormenting. Abide! I cried, Or I die with thy consenting. Te hee hee! Quoth she, Make no fool of me! Men I know have oaths at pleasure; But their hopes attained, They bewray they feigned, And their oaths are kept at leisure.
Her words Like swords Cut my sorry heart in sunder. Her flouts With doubts Kept my heart affections under. Te hee hee! Quoth she, What a fool is he, Stands in awe of once denying! Cause I had enough To become more rough; So I did: O happy trying!
