THE PICTURE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Thou that both feel'st and dost admire
Last Line: Of nature this is; that of art.
Subject(s): Portraits

THOU that both feel'st and dost admire
The flames shot from a painted fire,
Know Celia's image thou dost see:
Not to herself more like is she.
He that should both together view
Would judge both pictures, or both true.
But thus they differ: the best part
Of Nature this is; that of Art.
