First Line: Andromeda, by perseus saved and wed
Last Line: Its shadow upon life enough for thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Rossetti, Gabriel Charles Dante
Subject(s): Andromeda (mythology); Mythology - Classical; Perseus

ANDROMEDA, by Perseus saved and wed,
Hankered each day to see the Gorgon's head:
Till o'er a fount he held it, bade her lean,
And mirrored in the wave was safely seen
That death she lived by.

Let not thine eyes know
Any forbidden thing itself, although
It once should save as well as kill: but be
Its shadow upon life enough for thee.
