On Don Surly

Don Surly, to aspire the glorious name Of a great man, and to be thought the same,
Makes serious use of all great trade he know
He speaks to men with a Rhinocerotes' nose,
Which he thinks great; and so reads verses too, And that is ...

Preconception

I have no children:
But tonight a poem came in which a small child, my daughter, appeared at the door of a half-lit room where late one night I wrote at a heavy desk
And though interruption was hardly welcome I took her to myself, just a...

My Picture Left in Scotland

I now think Love is rather deaf than blind, For else it could not be That she, Whom I adore so much, should so slight me And cast my love behind
I'm sure my language to her was as sweet, And every close did meet In sentence of as subtle feet,...

To John Donne

Donne, the delight of Phoebus and each Muse Who, to thy one, all other brains refuse; Whose every work of thy most early wit Came forth example, and remains so yet; Longer a-knowing than most wits do live; And which no affection praise enough can ...

On Giles and Joan

Who says that Giles and Joan at discord be
Th' observing neighbors no such mood can see
Indeed, poor Giles repents he married ever,   But that his Joan doth too
And Giles would

IX Song To Celia

Drink to me, only, with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kisse but in the cup, And Ile not look for wine
The thirst, that from the soule doth rise, Doth aske a drink divine:
But might I of Jove's Nectar sup, I wou...

On Lucy Countess of Bedford

This morning, timely rapt with holy fire,
I thought to form unto my zealous Muse   What kind of creature I could most desire,
To honour, serve, and love; as poets use
I meant to make her fair, and free, and wise,

To My Book

It will be looked for, book, when some but see Thy title,
Epigrams, and named of me,
Thou should'st be bold, licentious, full of gall, Wormwood and sulphur, sharp and toothed withal,
Become a petulant thing, hurl ink and wit As madm...

A Celebration of Charis I His Excuse for Loving

Let it not your wonder move, Less your laughter, that I love
Though I now write fifty years, I have had, and have, my peers; Poets, though divine, are men, Some have lov'd as old again
And it is not always face, Clothes, or fortune, give...
