Upon Julia's Clothes  (1648) 
by Robert Herrick
Published in Hesperides, 1648

Upon Julia's ClothesEdit

Whenas in silks my Julia goes,
Then, then, methinks, how sweetly flows
That liquefaction of her clothes.

Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
That brave vibration each way free;
O how that glittering taketh me!
