UPON THE LOSS OF HIS MISTRESSES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I have lost, and lately, these
Last Line: Their departures hence, and die.
Subject(s): Love - Loss Of


I have lost, and lately, these
Many dainty Mistresses:
Stately Julia, prime of all;
Sapho next, a principall:
Smooth Anthea, for a skin
White, and Heaven-like Chrystalline:
Sweet Electra, and the choice
Myrha, for the Lute, and Voice.
Next, Corinna, for her wit,
And for the graceful use of it:
With Perilla: All are gone;
Onely Herrick's left alone,
For to number sorrow by
Their departures hence, and die.
