IX.

Love, dearest Lady, such as I would speak,
Lives not within the humour of the eye ;-
Not being but an outward phantasy,
That skims the surface of a tinted cheek,-
Else it would wane with beauty, and grow

weak,
As if the rose made summer,—and so lie
Amongst the perishable things that die,
Unlike the love which I would give and seek :
Whose health is of no hue—to feel decay
With cheeks' decay, that have a rosy prime.
Love is its own great loveliness alway,
And takes new lustre from the touch of time;
Its bough owns no December and no May,
But bears its blossom into Winter's clime.
