Upon His Gray Haires
By Robert Herrick
FLY me not, though I be gray,
Lady, this I know you ’ll say;
Better look the Roses red,
When with white commingled.
Black your haires are; mine are white;        5
This begets the more delight,
When things meet most opposite:
As in Pictures we descry,
Venus standing Vulcan by.
