|Glass antique! twixt thee and Nell|
Draw we here a parallel.
She, like thee, was forced to bear
All reflections, foul or fair.
Thou art deep and bright within,
Depths as bright belongd to Gwynne;
Thou art very frail as well,
Frail as flesh is,so was Nell.

When we will tempt the frailty of our powers,
