First Line: But give them me, the mouth, the eyes, the brow!
Last Line: Defied, -- no past is mine, no future: look at me!
Subject(s): Consolation; Eurydice (Nymph); Leighton, Frederick (1830-1896); Paintings & Painters


BUT give them me, the mouth, the eyes, the brow!
Let them once more absorb me! One look now
Will lap me round forever, not to pass
Out of its light, though darkness lie beyond:
Hold me but safe again within the bond
Of one immortal look! All woe that was,
Forgotten, and all terror that may be,
Defied, -- no past is mine, no future: look at me!
