Upon the Nipples of Julia’s Breast – Robert Herrick


Have ye beheld, with much delight,
A red-Rose peeping through a white?
Or else a Cherrie, double grac’t,
Within a Lillie?  Center plac’t?
Or ever mark’t the pretty beam,
A Strawberry shows halfe drown’d in Creame?
Or seen rich Rubies blushing through
A pure smooth Pearle, and Orient too?
So like to this, nay all the rest,
Is each neate Niplet of her breast.

[Hesperides: or, The works both humane and divine of Robert Herrick, Volume 1]
