TO SILVIA TO WED.|
by Robert Herrick
LET us, though late, at last, my Silvia, wed
And loving lie in one devoted bed.
Thy watch may stand, my minutes fly post-haste ;
No sound calls back the year that once is past.
Then, sweetest Silvia, let's no longer stay ;
True love, we know, precipitates delay.
Away with doubts, all scruples hence remove ;
No man at one time can be wise and love.
