ng night all_--
Didst thou discourse of yestere'en?"

_I'm passion's thrall_.

"The whole discourse that we did hold,

_The long night all_--
Was of thy virtues manifold,"

_I'm passion's thrall_.

The King his little page address'd,

_The long night all_--
"To come to me the cook request,"

_I'm passion's thrall_.

"Thou cook, the Greve to pieces chop,

_The long night all_--
And to thy Lady serve him up,"

_I'm passion's thrall_.

Long sat the Queen, the meat she eyed,

_The long night all_--
"This is no Roe I'm satisfied,

_I'm passion's thrall_.

"But 'tis the Greve our hall who grac'd."

_The long night all_--
The pieces she collects in haste,

_I'm passion's thrall_.
