A New collections of songs and poems by Thomas D'Urfey ...
D'Urfey, Thomas, 1653-1723.
Kingston Church, a Song.
SWeet use your time, abuse your time
No longer, but be wise;
Your Lovers now discover you
Have Beauty to be priz'd;
But if you'r Coy you'l loose the joy,
So Curst will be your Fate,
The flower will fade, you'l dy a Maid,
And mourn your chance too late.
At Thirteen years and Fourteen years
The Virgins heart may range,
'Twixt Fifteen years and Fifty years
You'l find a wondrous chance;
Page 16 Then whilst in Tune in May and Iune,
Let Love and Youth agree;
For if you stay till Christmas day
The Devil shall woo for me.
