Belinda

Language: English

Belinda's pretty pleasing form
Does my happy fancy charm,
Her prittle prattle, tittle tattles
All engaging, most obliging;
Whilst I'm pressing, clasping, kissing,
Oh! How she does my soul alarm.
There is such magic in her eyes,
Does my wondering heart surprise;
Her prinking, mimping, twinking, pinking,
Whilst I'm courting for transporting;
How like an angel she panting lies.
