TO THE HANDSOME MISTRESS GRACE POTTER

TO THE HANDSOME MISTRESS GRACE POTTER

As is your name, so is your comely face
Touch’d every where with such diffused grace,
As that in all that admirable round,
There is not one least solecism found;
And as that part, so every portion else
Keeps line for line with beauty’s parallels.



Poem TO THE HANDSOME MISTRESS GRACE POTTER - Robert Herrick
