Denial
Anonymous
 
(From The Cupid, 1736)

WHAT! put off with one denial?
And not make a second trial?
You might see my eyes consenting,
All about me was relenting:
Women, obliged to dwell in forms,        5
Forgive the youth who boldly storms.
 
Lovers, when you sigh and languish;
When you tell us of your anguish;
To the Nymph you’ll be more pleasing,
When those sorrows you are easing;        10
We love to try how far men dare,
And never wish the foe shou’d spare.
