Ohl happy man whose sight is blessed
With all thy beauty's perfectnessl
When Love, with gentle influence warm.
Shall once enfold thy faultless form
He then shall find a sweeter saint
Than Fancy's pencil ere could paint.
The fairies gave thy heart so true;
The fairies gave thine eyes' deep blue;
Where Cupid sits, an archer bold,
To wound all men who dare behold,
And Freedom's lost beyond repair
To thqse who linger gazing there.
