Robert Herrick Poems

  • His Confession
    Look how our foul days do exceed our fair;
    And as our bad, more than our good works are,
    E'en so those lines, pen'd by my wanton wit,
    Treble the number of these good I've writ. ...
  • What God Is
    God is above the sphere of our esteem,
    And is the best known, not defining Him.

  • Love Me Little, Love Me Long
    You say, to me-wards your affection's strong;
    Pray love me little, so you love me long.
    Slowly goes far: the mean is best: desire,
    Grown violent, does either die or tire....
  • Health
    Health is no other, as the learned hold,
    But a just measure both of heat and cold.

  • Upon Brock. Epig
    To cleanse his eyes, Tom Brock makes much ado,
    But not his mouth, the fouler of the two.
    A clammy rheum makes loathsome both his eyes:
    His mouth, worse furr'd with oaths and blasphemies....

Lewis Carroll Poem
A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky
 by Lewis Carroll

A boat beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July-

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear-
