Fairer than younger beauties, more beloved
Than many a wife, --
By stress of Time's vicissitudes unmoved
From settled calm of life, --

Endearing rectitude to those who watch
The verdict of your face,
Raising & making gracious those who catch
A semblance of your grace: --

With kindly lips of welcome, & with pleased
Propitious eyes benign,
Accept a kiss of homage from your least
Last Valentine.
