88 BYGONE SUSSEX.
At Magrum then in Germany
Their lord did see them marryed, From whence unto the towne of Rye, In England, were they carry'd;
Where now they dwell,
Beloved well Of neighbours farre and neere ;
Loves Anthony, The pride of Lester-shire.
You mayds and young men warning take
By these two lovers kinde, Whoever you your choyce doe make, To them be true in minde; For, perfect love Comes from above, As may by this appeare, Which came to passe By Sussex lasse, And the lad of Lester-shire.
