T. R. Smith, comp.  Poetica Erotica: Rare and Curious Amatory Verse.  1921–22.
 
To Dianeme
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
(Songs from Hesperides, 1648)

SHOW me thy feet; show me thy legs, thy thighs;
Show me those fleshy principalities;
Show me that hill (where smiling Love doth sit)
Having a living fountain under it.
Show me thy waist, then let me there withal,        5
By the assention of thy lawn, see all.
