John Bartlet

A Booke of Ayres


XIIII. What thing is loue

      What thing is loue, I pray thee tell
      It is a prickle, it is a sting
      It is a pretty pretty thing
      It is a fire, it is a coale,
      Whose flame creepes in at euery hole,
      And as my wits can best deuise,
      Loues darling lies in Ladies eyes.

George Peele
