"YES! THOU ART FAIR, YET BE NOT MOVED"

          YES! thou art fair, yet be not moved
            To scorn the declaration,
          That sometimes I in thee have loved
            My fancy's own creation.

          Imagination needs must stir;
            Dear Maid, this truth believe,
          Minds that have nothing to confer
            Find little to perceive.

          Be pleased that nature made thee fit
            To feed my heart's devotion,                              10
          By laws to which all Forms submit
            In sky, air, earth, and ocean.
                                                              1845.
