“Doll’s boy’s asleep

under a stile

he sees eight and twenty

ladies in a line

 

the first lady

says to nine ladies

his lips drink water

but his heart drinks wine

 

the tenth lady

says to nine ladies

they must chain his foot

for his wrist’s too fine

 

the nineteenth

says to nine ladies

you take his mouth

for his eyes are mine.

 

Doll’s boy’s asleep

under the stile

for every mile the feet go

the heart goes nine.”
