  • I fill this cup to one made up
    Of loveliness alone,
    A woman, of her gentle sex
    The seeming paragon;
    To whom the better elements
    And kindly stars have given
    A form so fair, that, like the air,
    'T is less of earth than heaven.

  • Her every tone is music's own,
    Like those of morning birds,
    And something more than melody
    Dwells ever in her words.

    And shame them with thine eyes.
