Strephon and Clea, or, Love in its prime : being [t]he happy shepherd and lovely nymph : the timourous nymph at last does yield to love, and finds it next to joys incense above, the only sollace of the soul, such joys, flowing from thence, as all sad care destroys : long in kind Strephons arms she panting lay, 'twixt sighs and smiles, well pleased with wanton play : till both to feed their bleating flocks do rise, not try'd with love, for lovers that ne'r cloys : to a pleasant new tune us'd at the play-house.
