Subject(s): Kisses; Shepherds & Shepherdesses

FAIR Phyllis, more niggard than coy,
On getting no gain by denying,
For twenty fine sheep of her boy
Once offered a kiss for his buying.

The next day to bargain once more:
The shepherd found things in his favour,
Demanding of kisses a score
For every sheep that he gave her.

The next day fair Phyllis was fain,
And fearing her shepherd's displeasure,
In haste gave his flock back again
For a kiss that he paid her at leisure.

The next day her passion so drave,
Dog and sheep she'd have given unto him,
For a kiss that for nothing he gave
To Lizette who had started to woe him.
