Edward Sherburne
 
116. And she washed his Feet with her Teares,
and wiped them with the Hairs of her Head
 
THE proud Ægyptian Queen, her Roman Guest, 
(T'express her Love in Hight of State, and Pleasure) 
      With Pearl dissolv'd in Gold, did feast, 
                  Both Food, and Treasure. 
  
And now (dear Lord!) thy Lover, on the fair         5
And silver Tables of thy Feet, behold! 
      Pearl in her Tears, and in her Hair, 
                  Offers thee Gold.
