SEE Antonina playing her guitar,
With taper fingers straying o'er the strings
Which breathe soft-sounding chords, that, trembling far
Into the night, are borne on airy wings.

But Antonina's music is more rare;
For with her eyes -- the fingers of her soul --
She plays upon men's heart-strings: friend, beware!
For snapping of one string she naught does care;
Nay, were they all to break, she'd toss her hair
And seek for more to make her music whole.
