Edward Herbert (Эдуард Герберт (Херберт))


To Her Mind


Exalted Mind! whose Character doth bear
The first Idea of Perfection, whence
Adam's came, and stands so, how canst appear
In words? that only tell what here-
Tofore hath been; thou need'st as deep a sense
As prophecy, since there's no difference
In telling what thou art, and what shall be:
Then pardon me that Rapture do profess,
At thy outside, that want, for what I see,
Description, if here amaz'd I cesse
Thus--
Yet grant one Question, and no more, crav'd under
Thy gracious leave, How, if thou would'st express
Thyself to us, thou should'st be still a wonder? 



Edward Herbert's other poems:
  1. Ditty In Imitation Of The Spanish Entre Tanto Que L'Avril
  2. A Description
  3. Another Sonnet, To a Black Itself
  4. To Her Face
  5. To Her Body
