To His Verse
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
AWAY my verse; and never fear,
  As men before such beauty do;
On you she will not look severe,
  She will not turn her eyes from you.
Some happier graces could I lend        5
  That in her memory you should live,
Some little blemishes might blend,
  For it would please her to forgive.
