Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
W. Cowper
 
CXXXIV. To a Young Lady
 
SWEET stream, that winds through yonder glade, 
Apt emblem of a virtuous maid— 
Silent and chaste she steals along, 
Far from the world's gay busy throng; 
With gentle yet prevailing force,         5
Intent upon her destined course; 
Graceful and useful all she does, 
Blessing and blest where'er she goes; 
Pure-bosom'd as that watery glass, 
And Heaven reflected in her face.  10
