A rightful doom, the laws of nature cry, 'Tis, the artificers of death should die. Thus justly women suffer by deceit, Their practice authorises us to cheat.

Beg her, with tears, thy warm desires to grant; For tears will pierce a heart of adamant.

If tears will not be squeezed, then rub your eye, Or 'noint the lids, and seem at least to cry. Kiss, if you can; resistance if she make, And will not give you kisses, let her take. Kiss only soft, I charge you, and beware With your hard bristles not to brush the fair. He who has gain'd a kiss, and gains no more, Deserves to lose the bliss he got before. If once she kiss, her meaning is exprest; There wants but little pushing for the rest; Which if thou dost not gain, by strength or art, The name of clown then suits with thy desert; 'Tis downright dulness, and a shameful part.

Perhaps she calls it force, but if she 'scape, She will not thank you for th' omitted rape. The sex is cunning to conceal their fires; They would be forc'd e'en to their own desires. They seem t' accuse you with a down-cast sight, But in their souls confess you did them right.

Who might be forc'd, and yet untouch'd depart, Thank with their tongues, but curse you with their heart. Fair Phoebe and her sister did prefer, To their dull mates, the noble ravisher. When Venus had the golden apple gain'd, And the just judge fair Helen had obtained; When she with triumph was at Troy receiv'd, The Trojans joyful, while the Grecians griev'd: They vow'd revenge of violated laws, And Greece was arming in the cuckold's cause; Achilles, by his mother warn'd from war, Disguis'd his sex, and lurk'd among the fair.

What means Aeacides to spin and sew? With spear and sword in field thy valour show! And leaving this, the noble Pallas know. Or with that other draw the woolly twine, The same the fates for lector's thread assign? Banish thy falchion in thy powerful hand, Which can alone the pond'rous lance command. In the same room by chance the royal maid Was lodg'd, and, by his seeming sex, betrayed, Close to her side the youthful hero laid.

I know not how his courtship he began; But, to her cost, she found it was a man. For when disclos'd, and hast'ning to the field, He laid his distaff down and took the shield, With tears her humble suit she did prefer, And thought to stay the grateful ravisher. She sighs, she sobs, she begs him not to part; And now 'tis nature what before was art. She strives by force her lover to detain, And wishes to be ravish'd once again.

This is the sex; they will not first begin, But when compelled, are pleas'd to suffer sin. Is there, who thinks that woman first should woo? Lay by thy self-conceit, thou foolish beau. Begin, and save their modesty the shame; 'Tis well for thee, if they receive thy flame.

Ask, that thou may'st enjoy; she waits for this: And on thy first advance depends thy bliss. E'en Jove himself was forc'd to sue for love; None of the nymphs did first solicit Jove. But if you find your pray'rs increase her pride, Strike sail awhile, and wait another tide.

They fly when we pursue; but make delay. And when they see you shaken, they will stay. Sometimes it profits to conceal your end; Name not yourself her lover, but her friend. How many skittish girls have thus been caught? He prov'd a lover, who a friend was thought. Sailors by sun and wind are swarthy made; A tann'd complexion best becomes their trade. Th' ambitious youth who seeks an olive crown, Is sun-burnt with his daily toil, and brown; But if the lover hopes to be in grace, Wall be his looks, and meagre be his face. That colour from the fair compassion draws; She thinks you sick, and thinks herself the cause.

Orion wander'd in the woods for love.

  4. Nor fail a night-cap in full health to wear; Neglect thy dress, and discompose thy hair. All things are decent, that in love avail. Read long by night, and study to be pale. Forsake your food, refuse your needful rest; Be miserable that you may be blest. Shall I complain, or shall I warn you most? Faith, truth, and friendship, in the world are lost; A little and an empty name they boast. Trust not thy friend, much less thy mistress praise; If he believe, thou man'st a rival raise.

    But hope not thou, in this vile age to find Those rare examples of a faithful mind. The sea shall sooner with sweet honey flow; Or from the furze pears and apples grow.

    The Art of Love

    We sin with gust, we love by fraud to gain, And find a pleasure in our fellow's pain. From rival foes you may the fair defend; But would you ward the blow, beware your friend. Beware your brother, and your next of kin; But from your bosom friend your care begin. Here had I ended, but experience finds, That sundry women are of sundry minds; With various crotchets fill'd, and hard to please, They therefore must be caught by various ways.

    All things are not produced in any soil; 61 This ground for wine is proper, that for oil. So 'tis in men, but more in woman-kind; Diff'rent in face, in manners, and in mind. But wise men shift their sails with ev'ry wind; As changeful Proteus varied oft his shape, And did in sundry forms and figures 'scape. A running stream, a standing tree became, A roaring lion, or a bleating lamb.
