SON G

OF A

SCHOLAR and his MISTRESS,

Who being crofs'd by their Friends, fell mad for one another; and now firft meet in BEDLAM.

[MUSIC within. ]

The Lovers enter at oppofite doors, each held by a

Keeper.

LOOK, look, I fee-I see my love

Phillis.

'Tis he

appear?

'Tis he alone;

For, like him, there is none:

'Tis the dear, dear man, 'tis thee, dear.

Amyntas. Hark! the winds war;

The foamy waves roar ;

I fee a fhip afar:

Toffing and toffing, and making to the

fhore :

But what's that I view,

So radiant of hue,

St. Hermo, St. Hermo, that fits

upon the

Ah! No, no, no.

St. Hermo, never, never fhone fo bright; 'Tis Phillis, only Phillis, can fhoot so fair

a light;

'Tis Phillis, 'tis Phillis, that faves the ship alone,

For all the winds are hufh'd, and the
ftorm is overblown.

Phillis. Let me go, let me run, let me fly to his arms.
Amyntas. If all the fates combine,

And all the furies join,

I'll force my way to Phillis, and break

thro the charm.

[Here they break from their keepers, run to each other, and embrace.]

Phillis. Shall I marry the man I love?

And shall I conclude my pains?
Now blefs'd be the powers above,
I feel the blood bound in my veins;

With a lively leap it began to move,

[blocks in formation]

Amyntas. Body join'd to body, and heart join'd to

heart,

To make fure of the cure,

Go call the man in black, to mumble o'er his part.

Phillis. But fuppofe he should stay
Amyntas. At worst if he delay,

"Tis a work must be done,

We'll borrow but a day,

And the better, the fooner begun.

Cho. of both. At worst if be delay, &c.

[They run out together hand in hand.]
