(From The Festival of Love, 1789)

BE quiet, Sir! begone, I say!
Lord bless us! How you romp and tear!
        There!
        I swear!
Now you left my bosom bare!        5
I do not like such boisterous play,
So take that saucy hand away.
 
Why now, you’re ruder than before!
Nay, I’ll be hanged if I comply—
        Fie!        10
        I’ll cry!
Oh—I can’t bear it—I shall die!—
I vow I’ll never see you more!
But—are you sure you’ve shut the door?
