What Thing Is Love?

What thing is love? for sure I am it is a thing,
It is a prick, it is a thing, it is a prettie, prettie thing.
It is a fire, it is a coale, whose flame creeps in at every hoale.
And as my wits do best devise,
Loves dwelling is in Ladies eies.

-The Wisdom of Doctor Dodypoll, an anonymous play (1600)
