    Chinese proverb.

    You have beheld a smiling Rose
    When Virgins hands have drawn
    O’r it a Cobweb-Lawne:
    And here, you see, this Lilly shows,
    Tomb’d in a Christal stone,
    More faire in this transparent case,
    Than when it grew alone;
    And had but single grace.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
