Win her with gifts, if she respect not words ;
(Two Gentlemen of Verona).
Young wives, like changing winds, their power display
Cowley. Then follow my example, and ratify the agreement by a hearty conjugal embrace. I will give the word of command. Make ready! Present! Fire !
7. Buckstone. June 24.
A happy man and kind
She's all my fancy painted her,
She's fresh as the mornin', the fairest in May,
Scotch Song Nothing but mirth can conquer fortune's spite, No sky is heavy if the heart be light.
Churchill — June 26.
That clouded silk becomes you much,
Pope. June 27.
Spare her, immortals, spare,
Till all our days are done;
That in the sky doth run,
She has wit, and song, and sense,
M. Zrinyi, trans. by Sir 7. Bowring.
He hath great care to please his wife.
(The Comedy of Errors). June 29.
Ah! when I am wearied with working all day,
To thee, my delight, in the evening I come; No matter what beauties I saw in my way, They were but my visits, but thou art my home.
Love-what a volume in a word,
You know That body and soul have each one life, but one, And here's my love, here, living, at your feet.
