Nought but Love doth border near it,
Goose and Hen will Witness bear it.
Now to Natland, where choice Beauty,
And a Shepherd do salute me;
Lips I relish richly Roseack,
Purely Nectar and Ambrosiak;
But I'm chaste, as doth become me,
For the Country's Eyes are on me.
Now to Kirkland, truly by it
May that Say be verified:
"Far from God, but near the Temple,
Tho' their Pastor gave Example,
They are such a kind of Vermin,
Pipe they'd rather hear than Sermon.
Now to Kendall for * Cloth-making,
Sight, site, † Alderman awaking;
Beauteous Damsels, modest Mothers,
And her four and twenty Brothers;
Ever in her Honour spreading,
Where I had my Native Breeding.
A Town so highly renown'd for her commodius Cloathing, and
industrious Trading, as her Name is become famus in that
kind. Camb. in Brit.
Cloth is my Bread. Mot.
Now hast thou chang'd thy Title unto May'r,
Let Life, State, Style, improve thy Charter there.
