Poem by Robert Herrick
Upon the Loss of His Mistresses
I have lost, and lately, these Many dainty mistresses:Ч Stately Julia, prime of all; Sapho next, a principal: Smooth Anthea, for a skin White, and heaven-like crystalline: Sweet Electra, and the choice Myrha, for the lute and voice. Next, Corinna, for her wit, And the graceful use of it; With Perilla:ЧAll are gone; Only Herrick's left alone, For to number sorrow by Their departures hence, and die.
