When as in silks my Julia goes,
Then, then, methinks how sweetly flows
That liquefaction of her clothes.
Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
That brave vibration each way free;
Oh how that glittering taketh me!

Robert Herrick (1591-1674) English poet
“Upon Julia’s Clothes,” Hesperides, # 779 (1648)
