Leaving these [Kirkland and Kendal], to Staveley came I,
Where now all Night drinking am I;
Always frolick, free from Yellows,
With a Consort of good Fellows;
Where I'll stay, and end my Journey,
Till Brave Barnaby return a.

Now to Staveley strait repair I,
Where sweet Birds do hatch their airy
Arbours, Oziers freshly showing,
With soft mossy Rind o'ergrowing:
For Woods, Air, ALE, all excelling,
Would'st thou have a neater Dwelling?
...
Mirtil. Be't so, Faustulus! there repose thee,
Cheer thy Country with thy Poesy
Live, farewel, as thou deservest,
Rich in Arethusa's Harvest:
Under th' Beach while Shepherds rank thee
Zephyrus bless thee. Faust.] I do thank thee.
