William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
To the Western Wind
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
SWEET western wind, whose luck it is,
  Made rival with the air,
To give Perenna’s lips a kiss,
  And fan her wanton hair:
Bring me but one, I’ll promise thee,        5
  Instead of common showers,
Thy wings shall be embalmed by me,
  And all beset with flowers.
