10   Pomado for your Lips,
to make them soft and ruddy: And sweet as Cipres chips, a lustre like a Ruby soone it gets.

of Corall, or of Amber: A Powder that will Charme
or bring one to your Chamber, tis no harme.

a Maydenhead that's vanisht, You'le say she is no whoore, although that it were banisht long before.
13   A paire of Bodye[s feat]1
to make you fine and slender: A Buske as blacke as Ieat, to keepe your bellies vnder that are great.
14   And if you please to weare,
a Bodkin of pure Siluer: To thrust into your hayre, it comforteth the Liuer without feare.
15   Rebatoes, Tyres, and Rings,
Sissers and a Thimble: And many pretty thinges,
to keepe your fingers nimble, weauing stringes.
