    The essence of all beauty, I call love,
    The attribute, the evidence, and end,
    The consummation to the inward sense
    Of beauty apprehended from without,
    I still call love.

Paris wrapped in night! half nebulous
The moonlight streams o'er the blue-shadowed roofs..
A lovely frame for this wild battlescene

Trembles, mysterious, like a magic mirror

The ladies of St. James's!
They're painted to the eyes;
Their white is stays for ever,
Their red it never dies;
But Phyllida, my Phillida!
Her colour comes and goes;
It trembles to a lily,--
It wavers to a rose.
