UPON HIMSELF

Thou shalt not all die; for while Love’s fire shines
Upon his altar, men shall read thy lines;
And learn’d musicians shall, to honour Herrick’s
Fame, and his name, both set and sing his lyrics.

To his book’s end this last line he’d have placed:
Jocund his Muse was, but his Life was chaste.
