Elegiac 86

Anne is so lovely to girls; to me, now she is long and erect, pure—
these (i confess) are all true—broken and torn, as they've seen;
these (i declare) i deny. wit shivers when left from her figure'
curves all elide from her form. lustless is she in her sex.
Estlin is pretty in forms more sickly than Anne's—they are full of
playful insistence and charm, stolen from the Muses and girls.
