ON RECEIVING A PORTRAIT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: To gaze on you when life's last gleams decline
Last Line: And leave but one man happier here below.
Subject(s): Portraits


To gaze on you when life's last gleams decline,
And hold your hand, to the last clasp, in mine . .
Of these two wishes, these my only two,
One has been granted, gentle maid, by you:
Were thus the other certain, I should go,
And leave but one man happier here below.
