STATELY, KINDLY, LORDLY FRIEND
CONDENESCEND
HERE TO SIT BY ME, AND TURN
GLORIOUS EYES THAT SMILE AND BURN,
GOLDEN EYES, LOVE'S LUSTROUS MEED,
ON THE GOLDEN PAGE I READ.

ALL YOUR WONDROUS WEALTH OF HAIR
DARK AND FAIR,
SILKEN-SHAGGY, SOFT AND BRIGHT
AS THE CLOUDS AND BEAMS OF NIGHT,
PAYS MY REVERENT HAND'S CARESS
BLACK WITH FRIENDLIER GENTLENESS.
