CHAPTER VIII
PURITANS AND CAVALIERS II

There are two more lines of Lovelace's that are as familiar as any proverb,

I could not love thee, dear, so much,
Loved I not honour more.

The woman whom he loved believed him to be dead, and married another man. He was in despair, and he cared little what became of him. He threw away his fortune, and finally died in the depths of poverty.
Robert Herriek, 1591-1674. The fourth of these
Cavalier poets, and by far the greatest, was Robert Herrick. His life was quite different from that of the others in that he knew nothing of days at court. He had some fourteen years of quiet at Cambridge, and then twenty years of greater quiet as minister of a little country parish. He wrote more lyrics than any of his fellow poets, and a large number of them have that unexplainable quality which makes us say, " That is just the thought for the place."
" Robin " was one of the few men who are every inch alive. He loved the old Greek dances, but he could find amusement in watching his parishioners gambol around an English Maypole. He wrote a Thanksgiving for his little house, his watercress, his fire, his bread, and his " beloved beet " as simply and as sincerely as a child. Herrick enjoyed everything.

Where care
None is, slight things do lightly please,
he says gaily. He calls upon music,
Fall on me like a silent dew,
Or like those maiden showers,
Which, by the peep of day, do strew
A baptism o'er the flowers ;
