Original spelling, modern orthography

1. Loue Is a prettie Frencie,
a melancholy fire,
begot by lookes, maintain'd with hopes,
and hey th'end, by desire.

2. Love is a pretie Tyrant,
By our affections armed,
Take them away, none lives this day,
The Coward boy hath harmed.

3. Love is a pretie Idole,
Opinion did devise him,
His votaries is slouth and lies,
The Robes that doe disguise him.

4. Love is a pretie Painter,
And counterfeiteth passion,
His shadow'd lies, makes fancies rise,
To set beliefe in fashion.

5. Love is a pretie Pedlar,
Whose Packe is fraught with sorrowes,
With doubts with fears, with sighs with teares,
Some joyes, but those he borrowes.

6. Love is a pretie nothing,
Yet what a quoile it keepes,
With thousand eyes of jealousies,
Yet no one ever sleepes.
