THE WIVING AGE
16   Yet must I confesse many widowes there be Who from all libidinous thoughts are so free, They wed not for lust, but for loue as we see, Finde me such a one, and He quickly agree,
To match in this wiuing age. To match in this wiuing age.
17   Of all sorts and sexes theres some good some bad, Theres choyce of both widowes and maids to be had; He that happens well hath cause to be glad,
And therefore let euery honest young Lad Make choyce in this wiuing age, Make choyce, &c.
18    My song vnto Virgins is chiefly directed, Who now in this age are little respected, Though widowes be chosen and maids be reiected, They will be esteemed, though now they'r neglected,
Tet not in this wiuing age, Tet not in this wiuing age.
M.P.
Printed for Francis Coules at the vpper end of the old Baily neere Newgate.
