She Is Not Fair
By Franklin P. Adams
“SHE is not fair to outward view”;
  No beauty hers of form or face;
She hath no witchery, ’t is true,
            No grace.
Nor pretty wit, nor well-stored mind,        5
  Nor azure eyes, nor golden hair
Hath she. She is—I am not blind—
            Not fair.
What makes me love her, then? say you,
  For such a maid is not my wont.        10
Love her! What makes you think I do?
            I don’t.
