XXIX. The Happy Dead
Upon a Maid
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
HERE she lies, in bed of spice,
Fair as Eve in Paradise:
For her beauty, it was such
Poets could not praise too much.
Virgins, come, and in a ring        5
Her supremest Requiem sing;
Then depart, but see ye tread
Lightly, lightly o’er the dead.
