HIS MISTRESS TO HIM AT HIS FAREWELL

by
 You may vow I'll not forget
To pay the debt
Which to thy memory stands as due
As faith can seal it you.
--Take then tribute of my tears; So long as I have fears To prompt me, I shall ever Languish and look, but thy return see never.
Oh then to lessen my despair, Print thy lips into(the air, So by this Means, I may kiss thy kiss, Whenas some kind Wind Shall hither waft it:--And, in lieu, My lips shall send a thousand back to you.
