Night makes no difference ‘twixt Priest and Clerk;
Joan as my Lady’s as good i’ th’ dark.

    Interestingly, the numbering varies a little from edition to edition. In the Internet Archives, the 1891 editions make it #866, the 1893 editions—in Poetical Works of Robert Herrick—make it #865, and the 1898 editions make it #864.
