1 Think'st thou to seduce me then with words that haue no meaning ? Parats so can learne to prate our speech by pieces gleaning. Nurces teach their children so, about the time of weaning. 2 Learne to speake first, then to wooe, to wooing much pertayneth : Hee that courts vs, wanting Arte, soone falters when he fayneth : Lookes a-squint on his discourse, and smiles when hee complaineth. 3 Skilfull Anglers hide their hookes, fit baytes for euery season ; But with crooked pins fish thou, as babes doe that want reason ; Gogions onely can be caught with such poore trickes of treason. 4 Ruth forgiue me if I err'd from humane hearts compassion, When I laught sometimes too much to see thy foolish fashion : But alas, who lesse could doe that found so good occasion ?
