UPON THE NIPPLES OF JULIA'S BREAST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Have ye beheld (with much delight)
Last Line: Is each neate niplet of her breast.
Subject(s): Breasts


Have ye beheld (with much delight)
A red-Rose peeping through a white?
Or else a Cherrie (double grac't)
Within a Lillie? Center plac't?
Or ever mark't the pretty beam,
A Strawberry shewes halfe drown'd in Creame?
Or seen rich Rubies blushing through
A pure smooth Pearle, and Orient too?
So like to this, nay all the rest,
Is each neate Niplet of her breast.
