CLXXVII. The Lost Love
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!
