Boyhood and Girlhood

Did our first parents in their happy seat,
New from the Maker's hand, a wedded pair,
In livelier hues their several sex declare
Than that brave boy, and that wee lady sweet?

Though not in measure nor in mind complete
They come, a perfect husband and a bride;
Yet is the seal impress'd and testified
By prophet Nature, till the season meet.

The girl, a girl instinct with simple arts,
And all the innocent cunning of her sex;
A very girl, delighting to perplex

The eye of love with antic change of parts:
Burly and bold the lad, his mien denotes
One-hearted manhood even in petticoats.
