Sweet-and-Twenty

O MISTRESS mine, where are you roaming? O, stay and hear! your true love ‘s coming, That can sing both high and low: Trip no further, pretty sweeting; Journeys end in lovers meeting, Every wise man’s son doth know.

What is love? ’tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
What ‘s to come is still unsure:
In delay there lies no plenty;
Then come kiss me, sweet-and-twenty!
Youth ‘s a stuff will not endure.
