TESTO DEL LIED"An Epithalamium"
di Elkanah Settle (1648-1724)
Thrice happy lovers, may you be for ever free
From the tormenting devil jealousy,
From all the anxious cares and strife
That attends a married life.
Be to one another true,
Kind to her as she's to you.
And since the errors of the night are past,
May he be ever constant, she be ever chaste.
