T. R. Smith, comp.  Poetica Erotica: Rare and Curious Amatory Verse.  1921–22.
 
To Perenna
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
(Songs from Hesperides, 1648)

WHEN I thy parts run o’er, I can’t espy
In any one the least indecency;
But every line and limb diffused thence
A fair and unfamiliar excellence:
So that the more I look the more I prove        5
There’s still more cause why I the more should love.
