PURITANS AND CAVALIERS II

but he is equally ready to chat in rhyme about his maid " Prewdence," his hen, his cat, his goose, or his dog Tracy.
Herrick wrote two collections of poems, The Hesperides and Noble Numbers. The Hesperides is all aglow with sunshine ; it is full of " brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers," as he says in his argument. Chaucer writes of the spring time and of the longing that it gives folk to go on pilgrimage, but there is even more of the springtime eagerness to go somewhere under the open sky in Herrick's Corinna's Going a-Maying.

Get up, get up for shame ! the blooming morn
Upon her wings presents the god unshorn.
See how Aurora throws her fair
Fresh-quilted colours through the air:
Get up, sweet slug-a-bed, and see
The dew bespangling herb and tree.

To " Julia" he writes a crisp little Night Piece
Her eyes the glow-worm lend thee,
Then shooting stars attend thee ;
And the elves also,
Whose little eyes glow
Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.

He writes to " Corinna " or " Perilla " or " Anthea," but not with the agonies of Elizabethan lovers ; for he seems to have no more choice among them than that one name will suit his line and another will not.
His religious poems, Noble Numbers, are somewhat different from those of the other writers of religious verse. He is no hermit, no recluse. " God is over the world, then let us enjoy it," is the spirit of his verse. He does not long for the mystic joys of martyrdom ; he does not often beg
