    Upon The Nipp*** Of Julia's Brea**
    by Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

    Have ye beheld (with much delight)
    A red rose peeping through a white?
    Or else a cherry (double graced)
    Within a lily, centre placed?
    Or ever marked the pretty beam
    A strawberry shows half drowned in cream?
    Or seen rich rubies blushing through
    A pure smooth pearl, and orient too?
    So like to this, nay all the rest,
    Is each neat niplet of her brea**.
