HAng up the Gallow-Tree, since 'twould not doo't
The Maid was hang'd for her Abortive fruit:
——Yet doe not: for, though weak, perhaps next yeare
It may, like Her, get strength againe, and Beare.


If Life be but a Tennis play, Thou then
Com'st from the Hazzard to be Toss'd agen.
Here only was the difference, in Thine
The Game was sav'd by playing under Line.
