THE SHAVEN BEAUTY, by            
First Line: They have shaved his head
Last Line: Thank god his dawn still saving!

They have shaved his head
In ugliness to dress him;
They were full of dread,
And jealous to possess him.

Black as night, and bright
As dawn, until his shaving,
Now he's lost his night,
Thank God his dawn still saving!
