Famous quotes containing the word myrtle:

    But Thou that know’st Love above Intrest or lust
    Strew the Myrtle and Rose on this once belov’d Dust
    And shed one pious tear upon Jinny the Just
    Tread soft on her Grave, and do right to her honor
    Let neither rude hand no ill Tongue light upon her
    Do all the smal Favors that now can be done her
    Matthew Prior (1664–1721)
