To cure her follie.

It was upon a springtide day,
When all the world was fresh and gay,
And birds did sing to drive away
Foul melancholie.
I met Aminta in the grove,
But nought of earth or Heaven above,
Not e'en the power of mighty love
Could draw her to me.
No more will I the nymph pursue,
I'll rather turn her o'er to you,
Go therefore try what you can do,
To cure her follie.
But if you fail, then do not grieve;
The flinty-hearted fair one leave,
Come back again to us at eve,
And we'll be jolly.
