No love between these two was lost,
Each was to other kind:
In love they liv'd, in love they died.
And left two babes behind:
The one a fine and pretty boy,
Not passing three years old;
The other a girl, more young than he,
And made in beauty's mould.
The father left his little son.
As plainly doth appear,
When he to perfect age should come,
Three hundred pounds a year;
And to his little daughter Jane
Five hundred pounds in gold.
To be paid down on marriage day,
Which might not be controll'd.
But if the children chance to die
Ere they to age should come,
Their uncle should possess their wealth j
For so the will did run.
> Now, brother ," said the dying man ,
»Look to my children dear;
Be good unto my boy and girl.
No friends else have they here:
To God and you I recommend
My children dear this day;
But little while be sure we have
Within this world to stay.
You must be father and mother both,
And uncle, all in one;
