William Wilfred Campbell, comp.  The Oxford Book of Canadian Verse.  1913.
By Jean Blewett (1862–1934)
HER eyes—upon a summer’s day
God’s skies are not more blue than they.
Her hair—you’ve seen a sunbeam bold
Made up of just such threads of gold.
Her cheek—the leaf which nearest grows        5
The dewy heart of June’s red rose.
Her mouth—full lipped, and subtly sweet
As brier drowned in summer heat.
Her heart—December’s chill and snow;
Heaven pity me, who love her so!        10
