'TIS NOT OTHERWISE
To heare it tattle, laugh, and squeake, I smile and hug the boy:
I with it play with great delight, and hush it when it cryes,
And euer wish it in my sight, then 'tis not otherwise.
16 All Batchelors I wish you wed,
if merry you would Hue, A single man is oft misled,
and seldome doth he thriue: I liu'd before, but better now,
my ioy and wealth arise, To Hue well I haue showne you how,
then 'tis not otherwise.
Printed at London by G.B.
