Rush, lily

Cymbeline, [2.2.11-17]. Iachimo. “The crickets sing, and man’s o’er-labor’d sense/ Repairs itself by rest. Our Tarquin thus/ Did softly press the rushes ere he waken’d/ The chastity he wounded. Cytherea/ How bravely thou becom’st thy bed, fresh lily,/ And whiter than the sheets! That I might touch!/ But kiss, one kiss!”
