Chearful Comrades I have by me,
Townsmen that do neighbour nigh me;
Within, without, where'er I rest me,
Carking Cares do ne'er molest me:
With these I please to consort me,
And in * open Fields to sport me.
Now to Richmond, when Spring's come on,
Now to Nesham with my Woman;
With free Course we both approve it,
Where we love and are beloved;
Here Fields Flower with freshest Creatures,
Representing Flora's Features.
Now to Ashton, I'm invited
By my Friend and Kinsman cited;
Secret Cellars entertain me,
Beauteous beaming Stars inflame me;
Meat, Mirth, Musick, Wines are there full,
With a Count'nance blith and cheerful.
Now to Cowbrow, quickly thither
Jovial Boys do flock together;
In which Place all Sorrow lost is,
Guests know how to kiss their Hostess;
Thus thro' the fair Fields, when I have best Leisure,
Diaper'd richly, do I take my Pleasure,
To cheer my Studies with a pleasing Measure.
