First Line: I have seen dawn and sunset on moors and windy hills
Last Line: Are her voice, and her hair, and eyes, and the dear red curve of her lips.
Alternate Author Name(s): Masefield, John Edward
Subject(s): Beauty; Love


I HAVE seen dawn and sunset on moors and windy hills
Coming in solemn beauty like slow old tunes of Spain:
I have seen the lady April bringing the daffodils,
Bringing the springing grass and the soft warm April rain.

I have heard the song of the blossoms and the old chant of the sea,
And seen strange lands from under the arched white sails of ships;
But the loveliest things of beauty God ever has showed to me,
Are her voice, and her hair, and eyes, and the dear red curve of her lips.
