First Line: Ill-fated heart! And can it be
Last Line: A fitter emblem of his own.
Alternate Author Name(s): Byron, Lord; Byron, 6th Baron

ILL-FATED Heart! and can it be
That thou shouldst thus be rent in twain?
Have years of care for thine and thee
Alike been all employ'd in vain?

Yet precious seems each shatter'd part,
And every fragment dearer grown,
Since he who wears thee feels thou art
A fitter emblem of his own.
