MARRIAGE A LA MODE: SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Why should a foolish marriage vow

Why should a foolish marriage vow
Which long ago was made,
Oblige us to each other now
When passion is decayed?
We loved, and we loved, as long as we could,
Till our love was loved out in us both:
But our marriage is dead, when the pleasure is fled:
'Twas pleasure first made in an oath.
