NOT even once have I looked on thy face;
Yet when all cloudless beams the sky's blue space,
I think as deep, as pure, serene, and clear,
Thine eyes may be as this fair azure sphere.

When earth in all her pomp of bloom beguiles,
And from each flower-cup an angel smiles,
When breath of love through all the world goes forth,
I think e'en thus bewitching is thy mouth.

All beauty which the heav'n and earth enfold,
I could, O noble Queen, in thee behold!
In very joy and rapture I must weep,
Because the earth and heaven in thee tryst keep.
