A decorative double-ruled border surrounds the poem page. Decorations at each of the four corners give the border a twig-tied appearance. They feature crossed double-ruled bars tied together with string in an X-shaped knot.

Love and Time.

Because old Time’s a rover1
Need young Love change his home ?2
Ah, now that summer’s over,3
Old Time, and winter come,4
Teach young Love to discover,5
Where’er thou roamest, some6
New ways whereby to love her,7
If Love with thee must roam8
Old Time, why wilt thou never9
Let young Love be ? Ah why !10
Because thou art for ever11
Unkindly fleeting by.12
Must Love, too, share thy treasons,13
And play me false like thee ?14
Change thou thy suns and seasons,15
But leave my love to me !16
