R. Herrick
LXXXVIII. To Dianeme
SWEET, be not proud of those two eyes 
Which starlike sparkle in their skies; 
Nor be you proud that you can see 
All hearts your captives, yours yet free; 
Be you not proud of that rich hair         5
Which wantons with the lovesick air; 
Whenas that ruby which you wear, 
Sunk from the tip of your soft ear, 
Will last to be a precious stone 
When all your world of beauty's gone.  10
