Who has peerless Kitty seen?
Fairest nymph that treads the green;
Object sweet of fond desire,
Who can look and not admire?
In her soul-delighting eyes,
Love, the little lurcher, lies.
There he keeps his hoard of darts,
Whence he wounds and sports with hearts
Or, perch'd on her coral lips,
Thence delicious nectar sips;
Or his wonted ambush seeks
In the dimples of her cheeks.
Fly, ye youths, her beauties shun;
Ev'ry gazer is undone!
Chief, her eyes, as basilisks', dread!
Which, but win to strike us dead.
