Colin Instructed

Written by: Thomas Chatterton | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 Young Colin was as stout a boy 
As ever gave a maiden joy; 
But long in vain he told his tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale. 
Ah why, the whining shepherd cried, 
Am I alone your smiles denied? 
I only tell in vain my tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale. 

True Colin, said the laughing dame, 
You only whimper out your flame, 
Others do more than sigh their tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale. 

He took the hint &c.
