The Marriage of Edward Herbert Esquire, and Mrs. Elizabeth Herbert

The Marriage of Edward Herbert Esquire, and Mrs. Elizabeth Herbert

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
