THE PLEASED CAPTIVE; A SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A glorious angel coming on the wing
Last Line: But cynthia's chains who would not choose to wear?
Subject(s): Love


A GLORIOUS angel coming on the wing,
From Heav'n descended near a river side,
Where me alone my destiny did bring,
To view the pleasant fields without a guide;
A net she'd laid, drawn by a silken string,
So hid in grass, it could not be espy'd,
There was I captive taken in her snare,
But Cynthia's chains who would not choose to wear?
