PORTRAITS through a poet's eyes

Draw him as like too, as you can,
An old, poore, lying, flatt'ring man:
His cheeks be-pimpled, red and blue;
His nose and lips of mulbrie hiew...

Next, make his cheeks with breath to swell,
And for to speak, if possible:
But do not so; for feare, lest he
Sh'd by his breathing, poyson thee.

TO THE PAINTER,
TO DRAW HIM A PICTURE
By Robert Herrick (English, 1591-1674)
