Mary Elizabeth Coleridge Quotes


    O LET me be in loving nice,
    Dainty, fine, and o’er precise,
    That I may charm my charmàd dear
    As tho’ I felt a secret fear
    To lose what never can be lost,—
    Her faith who still delights me most!
    So shall I be more than true,
    Ever in my ageing new.
    So dull habit shall not be
    Wrongly call’d Fidelity.
