HER hair is winged with summer nights,
Her brow is like the dawn,
Her voice is like an olden song
That memory lingers on,
And all her movements are as soft
And gentle as a fawn.

A lovely mild, and winsome girl
Of strange and Eastern grace—
I thought, "How happy art thou, child
In whom all gifts find place,"
Till deep within her eyes I saw
The story of her race.
