Which waves in each raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
the place ideas serenely candy exhibit
How natural, how pricey their dwelling-place.

So delicate, so calm, but eloquent,
the grins that win, the tints that glow,
yet inform of days in goodness spent,
A brain at peace with all under,
A middle whose love is innocent!
