Lines on Sir Peter Parker
SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY.
She Walks In Beauty, like the night
And all that's best of dark and bright
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Which waves in every raven tress,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A heart whose love is innocent!
