Subject(s): Beauty; Immortality; Youth


I always loved the splendour of your youth
That seemed to shine of its own inner light:
I think your beauty is the only truth
That will survive destruction and the night.

Endymion, Adonis and the rest,
Immortal now, because they once were fair,
Hold unprofaned a place among the blest
For you. They will enshrine your beauty there.

So, when the dark and lonely hours arrive
And even you feel time's malicious dart,
Be of good cheer. Your beauty will survive
So long as beats one visionary heart.
