THREE FACES: 2. GENOA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Again the same strange might of eyes, that saw
Last Line: Again the same?
Subject(s): Genoa, Italy; Roundels


Again the same strange might of eyes, that saw
In heaven and earth nought fairer, overcame
My sight with rapture or reiterate awe,
Again the same.

The self-same pulse of wonder shook like flame
The spirit of sense within me: what strange law
Had bid this be, for blessing or for blame?

To what veiled end that fate or chance foresaw
Came forth, this second sister face, that came
Absolute, perfect, fair, without a flaw,
Again the same?
