THE LADY TO ANSWER DIRECTLY WITH|
YEA OR NAY.
ADAM, withouten many words,|
Once I am sure you will, or no :
And if you will, then leave your
And use your wit, and shew it so,
For, with a beck you shall me call ;
And if of one, that burns alway,
Ye have pity or ruth 2 at all,
Answer him fair, with yea or nay.
If it be yea, I shall be fain ;
If it be nayfriends, as before ;
You shall another man obtain,
And I mine own, and yours no more.
1 Jests or tricks.
