Praisd be Dianas Fair and Harmless Light

Prais'd be Diana's fair and harmless light; Prais'd be the dews wherewith she moists the ground; Prais'd be her beams, the glory of the night; Prais'd be her power by which all powers abound
Prais'd be her nymphs with whom she decks the woods...

Guard well your hands: two things have been Unfitly used by some; The trencher for a tambourine, The table for a drum

A Farewell to False Love

Farewell, false love, the oracle of lies,
A mortal foe and enemy to rest,

The Silent Lover II

NG not, sweet empress of my heart, The merit of true passion,

Instead of earth took snow and silk,

On Being Challenged to Write an Epigram in the Manner of Herrick

To Griggs, that learned man, in many a bygone session,     His kids were his delight, and physics his profession;     Now Griggs, grown old and glum, and less intent on knowledge,     Physics himself at home, and sends his kids to college
