Beauty, Its Effect. - Poem by Robert Crawford

I have been touched with her, and have ta'en (Unclear
The acquaintance of her beauty like a dream,
Or as it were a flower of Faerie breathed
By an immortal; for the light and air
Of life and love so, so endue her, she
Puts on and off the sweetest favours like
The momentary raiment that
A goddess dons and doffs.

    When falling in love you see illusions and exaggerated figures and images, You don't even distinguish an Angel from a devil. Love is blind. i love the poem. (Report) Reply
