Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
10 Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear, their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, so eloquent,

But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
