Notes Work published anonymously, written by Behn. "The first 2 of the 10 stanzas are by Aphra Behn, from her play The City Heiress" (Worldcat). Full title is "The loves of Damon and Sappho: or: The shepherd crown'd with good success. You lovers all that would successful be; be not too bashful, but in love be free: time but your passion and you'l never fail, there is a time when you'l be sure prevail. Maids will deny, its true, but soon will yield, if once you charge, they soon will lose the field: though they deny, it is but for a fashion, for when they do, they have the greatest passion. A pleasant new play-house song, to the tune of, Hail to the myrtle shades."
