17 COLIN Beauty sat bathing by a spring Where fairest shades did hide her ; The
winds blew calm , the birds did sing , The cool streams ran beside her . My
wanton thoughts enticed mine eye 5 To see what was forbidden : But better

roasted crabs hiss in the bowlThen nightly sings the staring owl 15 Tuwhoo !
