BEAUTY, by                
First Line: Upon her eyes they gazed
Last Line: The world deep shadows fall.
Subject(s): Beauty

Upon her eyes they gazed,
And they were sore amazed;
All wine-consumers find
How wine consumer the mind.

Her glances all men dread,
But she still keeps her head;
The bearer of the blade
Needs not to be afraid.

My eager eyes upleapt
To greet her, and I wept;
The clouds, that swim below
The sun, with rain o'erflow.

I weep, when I recall
Her stature slim and tall;
Upon his bough the dove
Sighs his lament of love.

She left me, and my breast
A sombre grief oppressed;
At sunset over all
The world deep shadows fall.
