Editor's Selection of Poems
Upon the Curtaine of Lucasta's Picture,
It Was Thus Wrought

by Oliver Cromwell

Oh, stay that covetous hand; first turn all eye, 
All depth and minde; then mystically spye 
Her soul's faire picture, her faire soul's, in all 
So truely copied from th' originall, 
That you will sweare her body by this law 
Is but its shadow, as this, its;--now draw.
