Epitaph On The Tomb Of Sir Edward Giles And His Wife In The South Aisle Epitaph On The Tomb Of Sir Edward Giles And His Wife In The South Aisle

Epitaph On The Tomb Of Sir Edward Giles And His Wife In The South Aisle
Epitaph On The Tomb Of Sir Edward Giles And His Wife In The South Aisle of Dean Prior Church, Devon. No trust to metals nor to marbles, when These have their fate and wear away as men; Times, titles, trophies may be lost and spent, But virtue rears the eternal monument. What more than these can tombs or tombstones pay? But here's the sunset of a tedious day: These two asleep are: I'll but be undress'd And...

Upon Master Fletcher's Incomparable Plays
Apollo sings, his harp resounds: give room, For now behold the golden pomp is come, Thy pomp of plays which thousands come to see With admiration both of them and thee. O volume! worthy, leaf by leaf and cover, To be with juice of cedar wash'd all over; Here words with lines and lines with scenes consent To raise an act to full astonishment; Here melting numbers, words of power to move Young men...

Upon Parting Upon Parting

Upon Parting
Go hence away, and in thy parting know 'Tis not my voice but Heaven's that bids thee go; Spring hence thy faith, nor think it ill desert I find in thee that makes me thus to part. But voice of fame, and voice of Heaven have thundered We both were lost, if both of us not sundered. Fold now thine arms, and in thy last look rear One sigh of love, and cool it with a tear....

A Carol Presented To Dr. Williams, Bishop Of Lincoln As A New-year's Gift
Fly hence, pale care, no more remember Past sorrows with the fled December, But let each pleasant cheek appear Smooth as the childhood of the year, And sing a carol here. 'Twas brave, 'twas brave, could we command the hand Of youth's swift watch to stand As you have done your day; Then should we not decay. But all we wither, and our light Is...

Mr. Robert Herrick: His Farewell Unto Poetry
I have beheld two lovers in a night Hatched o'er with moonshine from their stolen delight (When this to that, and that to this, had given A kiss to such a jewel of the heaven, Or while that each from other's breath did drink Health to the rose, the violet, or pink), Call'd on the sudden by the jealous mother, Some stricter mistress or suspicious other, Urging divorcement (worse than death to these) By...

Ere I go hence and be no more Seen to the world, I'll give the score I owe unto a female child, And that is this, a verse enstyled My daughter's dowry; having which, I'll leave thee then completely rich. Instead of gold, pearl, rubies, bonds Long forfeit, pawned diamonds Or antique pledges, house or land, I give thee this that shall withstand The blow of ruin and of chance....

The Description Of A Woman The Description Of A Woman

The Description Of A Woman
Whose head, befringed with bescattered tresses, Shows like Apollo's when the morn he dresses,(B) Or like Aurora when with pearl she sets Her long, dishevell'd, rose-crown'd trammelets: Her forehead smooth, full, polish'd, bright and high Bears in itself a graceful majesty, Under the which two crawling eyebrows twine Like to the tendrils of a flatt'ring vine, Under whose shade two starry sparkling eyes Are beautifi'd with fair fring'd canopies. Her comely... Poems - Post by : natagiousnet - Date : March 2011 - Author : (poet) Robert Herrick - Read : 2180

His Coming To The Sepulchre
Hence they have borne my Lord; behold! the stone Is rolled away and my sweet Saviour's gone. Tell me, white angel, what is now become Of Him we lately sealed up in this tomb? Is He, from hence, gone to the shades beneath, To vanquish hell as here He conquered death? If so, I'll thither follow without fear, And live in hell if that my Christ stays there. Of all the good things... Poems - Post by : martyr - Date : March 2011 - Author : (poet) Robert Herrick - Read : 587

Hail, holy and all-honour'd tomb, By no ill haunted; here I come, With shoes put off, to tread thy room.

Good Friday: Rex Tragicus; Or, Christ Going To His Cross
Put off Thy robe of purple, then go on To the sad place of execution: Thine hour is come, and the tormentor stands Ready to pierce Thy tender feet and hands. Long before this, the base, the dull, the rude, Th' inconstant and unpurged multitude Yawn for Thy coming; some ere this time cry, How He defers, how loath He is to die!
