516. Lucy
SHE dwelt among the untrodden ways 
  Beside the springs of Dove, 
A Maid whom there were none to praise 
  And very few to love: 
A violet by a mossy stone         5
  Half hidden from the eye! 
Fair as a star, when only one 
  Is shining in the sky. 
She lived unknown, and few could know 
  When Lucy ceased to be;  10
But she is in her grave, and oh, 
  The difference to me!
