THE SPANISH LADY'S LOVE.
Of fair lovers there are plenty;
Spain doth yield a wondrous store."                     «
" Spaniards fraught with jealousie we often find; But English men throughout the world are counted kind.
" Leave me not unto a Spaniard ;
You alone enjoy my heart; I am lovely, young, and tender,                                   «
And so love is my desert. Still to serve thee day and night my mind is
prest; The wife of every English man is counted blest."
" It would be a shame, fair lady,
For to bear a woman hence ;                                   »
English soldiers never carry
Any such without offence." " I will quickly change myself, if it be so, And like a page I'll follow thee, where'er thou go"
" I have neither gold nor silver                                     as
To maintain thee in this case, And to travel, 'tis great charges, As you know, in every place." " My chains and jewels every one shall be thine
own, And eke ten thousand pounds in gold that lies unknown."                                                                   «>
