Happy Birthday!

Songwriter,

Johnnie Dryden

born 8/19/1631
(d1700)

        Sylvia, the fair in the bloom of fifteen,
        Felt an innocent warmth as she lay on the green,
        She'd heard of a pleasure, and something she's guess'd,
        For the towzing and tumbling and touching her breast.
        She saw the men eager, but was at a loss,
        What they meant by their sighing, and kissing so close;
            By their praying and whining,
            And clasping and twining,
            And panting and wishing,
            And sighing and kissing,
            And sighing and kissing so close.

                "Sylvia the Fair," by John Dryden, sung well by Ed McCurdy.
