On a Lady Throwing Snow-Balls at Her Lover

 [From the Latin of Petronious Ascanius.
] When, wanton fair, the snowy orb you throw, I feel a fire before unknown in snow.
E'en coldest snow I find has pow'r to warm My breast, when flung by Julia's lovely arm.
T'elude love's pow'rful arts I strive in vain, If ice and snow can latent fires contain.
These frolics leave: the force of beauty prove, With equal passion cool my ardent love.
