  • Text: For sure my Eyes have ne'er such grace beheld; / Not when chos'n Virgins on their Tresses quaint, / In sea-clasp'd Cyprus, when the Years in May, / To Venus' Temple Golden Baskets bear; / Whose pendant Fragrance, Hyacinth & Rose, / And breathing Crocus, shade their Feature blith, / And Iv'ry Neck's nice Toro'r (sic), from Phoebus'Ray. / One glittering Arm the Sacred Gifts suspend, / One frees the Step from the rich flowing Robe.' / Choise of Hercules, a Mask, M.S. Anonym. (in Richardson's hand)
