To Mrs. Putland
[ed.] "The wife of John Putland, stepson of Dr Richard Helsham". (Tucker [1992], 222) (AH)

1 Uncommon Charms, I plainly see,
2 Compleat the Fair for Tyranny.
3 Then, lest your Form should make you vain
4 Of Conquest, and of giving Pain,
5 Those, whom your Beauties have enslav'd,
6 By me shall now be undeceiv'd.
7 Long was I Fool enough to view
8 Thy rapt'rous Shape, and thought it new;
9 Till lately reading Waller o'er,
10 I found 'twas Amoret's before.
