The one doth call her his, the other his, (1794)

Yet neither may possess the claim they lay. (1795)

The father says 'She's mine.' 'O, mine she is, (1796)

Replies her husband: 'do not take away (1797)

My sorrow's interest; let no mourner say
He weeps for her, for she was only mine, (1799)

And only must be wail'd by Collatine.'
