Comfort To A Youth That Has Lost His Love by HERRICK, Robert

His verse is eminent for sweet and gracious fluency; this is a real note of the ‘Elizabethan’ poets. His subjects are frequently pastoral, with a classical tinge, more or less slight, infused; his language, though not free from exaggeration, is generally free from intellectual conceits and distortion, and is eminent throughout for a youthful NAIVETE. (From the introduction to FROM THE LYRICAL POEMS OF ROBERT HERRICK by Francis Turner Palgrave; Dec. 1876)
