The Database of Ornament TO . . . . . . .
IF Faith were given human form, alive and warm,
I think thy steady-burning eyes
Where Love and Hope and Courage dwell,
I think thy mouth so sweet and wise
Would suit her well.
For if not very Faith thou art.
Yet, Faith, who dwelleth in they heart,
Has wrought thy features to her will,
And made them pure and calm and still.
