The Marriage of Edward Herbert Esquire and Mrs. Elizabeth Herbert

Written by: Anne Kingsmill Finch | Biography
 CUPID one day ask'd his Mother, 
When she meant that he shou'd Wed? 
You're too Young, my Boy, she said: 
Nor has Nature made another 
Fit to match with Cupid's Bed. 


Cupid then her Sight directed 
To a lately Wedded Pair; 
Where Himself the Match effected; 
They as Youthful, they as Fair. 


Having by Example carry'd 
This first Point in the Dispute; 
WORSELEY next he said's not Marry'd: 
Her's with Cupid's Charms may suit
