THE TOUCH STONE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A fool and knave with different views
Last Line: If she's a knave, the fool.
Subject(s): Courtship


A FOOL and knave with different views
For Julia's hand apply;
The knave to mend his fortune sues,
The fool to please his eye.

Ask you how Julia will behave,
Depend on't for a rule,
If she's a fool she'll wed the knave --
If she's a knave, the fool.
