A Flowing Poem, Picked from an Anthology: “Upon Julia’s Clothes” by Robert Herrick

A poem to enjoy from the second anthology I’d been reading through, The Norton Book of Light Verse edited by Russell Baker.


Whereas in silks my Julia goes,
Then, then, me thinks, how sweetly flows
The liquefaction of her clothes!

Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
The brave vibration each way free,
—O how that glittering taketh me!

by Robert Herrick
(pub. 1648) 


Read a poem posted yesterday, from the first anthology: “From Love Sonnets of Proteus,” poem by Wilfrid Scawen Blunt.
