LINES TO THE EVENING STAR.

Maiden, there is pent in thee
Wealth of mirth and melody
That full oft amazes me.

Th’ flavour of the rarest wine
Hath the tiniest geste of thine;
Maiden, maiden, there are Nine

Muses in thee tightly packed,
Each with her own part to act;
As we marvel at the fact,
                        So we love thee— Maiden mine.

Two red roses with green leaves spaced apart.
