UPON JULIA'S CLOTHES.|
by Robert Herrick
WHENAS in silks my Julia goes,
Then, then, methinks, how sweetly flows
That liquefaction of her clothes.
Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
That brave vibration each way free ;
O how that glittering taketh me !
Abraham van den Tempel, 1651. Detail from
The Town of Leyden Receives The Cloth Industry.
