First Line: More beautiful than any gift you gave
Last Line: At a sale of cupids. A hawk looks at them.
Alternate Author Name(s): Prince, F. T.
Subject(s): Gifts & Giving; Love


More beautiful than any gift you gave
You were, a child so beautiful as to seem
To promise ruin what no child can have
Or woman give. And so a Roman gem
I choose to be your token: here a laurel
Springs to its young height, hangs a broken limb.
And here a group of women wanly quarrel
At a sale of Cupids. A hawk looks at them.
