FORCE OF LO V É.
PRESERVED FROM AN OLD MANUSCRIPT.
HROW an apple up a hill,
Down the apple tumbles still ;
Roll it down, it never stops
Till within the vale it drops :
So are all things prone to Love,
Down the mountain flows the stream,
Nought below, and nought above,
Metals grow within the mine,
'Tis a truth as clear, that Love
Man is born to live and die,
Doves are mild, and lions grim:
Does the cedar love the mountain ?
As the wencher loves a lafs,
A a 2
When young maidens courtship shun,
Then fhali Nature cease to Love.
