Title: Sweet Cupid, ripen her desires
Composer: William Corkine
Original text and translations
Sweet Cupid, ripen her desires thy joyful harvest may begin;
if age approach a little higher, ‘twill be too late to get it in.
Cold winter stormes lay standing corn, which once too ripe will never rise
and lovers wish themselves unborn, when all their joys lie in their eyes.
Then, sweete, let us embrace and kisse, shall beautie on the ground?
If age bereave us of this blisse, then will no more sport be found.
