And that this pleasure is like rain,
Not sent ye for to drown your pain,
But for to make it spring again.
29. THE BRIDE-CAKE
This day, my Julia, thou must make
For Mistress Bride the wedding-cake:
Knead but the dough, and it will be
To paste of almonds turn'd by thee;
Or kiss it thou but once or twice,
And for the bride-cake there'll be spice.
