1
    I fill this cup to one made up
  Of loveliness alone,
A woman, of her gentle sex
  The seeming paragon;
To whom the better elements
  And kindly stars have given
A form so fair, that, like the air,
  ’T is less of earth than heaven.
          A Health.
2
    Her every tone is music’s own,
  Like those of morning birds,
And something more than melody
  Dwells ever in her words.
          A Health.
3
    Look out upon the stars, my love,
  And shame them with thine eyes.
          A Serenade.
