    "To the Virgins, To Make Much of Time"

  1. Author: Herrick, Robert
    Title: "To the Virgins, To Make Much of Time"
    Date: 1648
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: In Lucy Gayheart, Mrs. Ramsay advises Lucy to gather all the roses she can during her lifetime. Herrick's poetry was very likely to be known to Cather. March (298) points out, however, that similar sentiments can be found in the Wisdom of Solomon 2:8 and in Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene.
