| Abate, like a flame grown moderate.|| 1|
| Brethe as the damask Rose.|| 2|
| Cheeks like creame enclairited.|| 3|
| Cheeks like roses when they blow.|| 4|
As if oerwashed with Hippocrene.
| Cool as the silent shades of sleep.|| 6|
| Fair as Eve in Paradise.|| 7|
|Fall on me like a silent dew,|
Or like those maiden showers,
Which by the peep of day, do strew
A baptism oer the flowers.
| Our days run|
As fast away as does the sun;
And as a vapour, or a drop of rain
Once lost, can neer be found again.
|Her pretty feet like snails, did creep|
A little out, and then,
As if they played at bo-peep,
Did soon draw in again.
| Full as a bee with thyme.|| 11|
Like to a dreadful comet in the air.
| Hairless as an egg.|| 13|
| Softly panting like a bride.|| 14|
| Plump as a cherry.|| 15|
| She shifts and changes like the moon.|| 16|
as colours steal into the pear or plum.|| 17|
like leaves that laden are with trembling dew.|| 18|
| Sparkling spangles
like morning sunshine tinselling the dew.|| 19|
| Sparkles like Ariadnes crown.|| 20|
| Sweet as the blossoms of the vine.|| 21|
| Sweet as vestry of the oracles.|| 22|
| Welcome as peace after destructive war.|| 23|
