Clypt meaning

1595–1662, Henry Lawes, A Dream.

I laid me down upon a pillow soft,

And dream'd I clypt and kissed my mistress oft.

She cried, Fie fie, away, you are too bold.

I pray'd her be content, though she were cold;

My veins did burn with flames of hot desire,

And must not leave till she had quench'd my fire.
