Portrait Of A Lady. By Sir Thomas Lawrence

Rating: 2.9
LADY , thy lofty brow is fair,
Beauty's sign and seal are there;
And thy lip is like the rose
Closing round the bee's repose;
And thine eye is like a star,
But blue as the sapphires' are.
Beautiful patrician! thou
Wearest on thy stately brow
All that suits a noble race,
All of high-born maiden's grace,--
Who is there could look on thee

Another Poetical Sketch of a Modern Picture. I haven't been able to positively identify this painting, which presumably dates from the early 1820s: note in particular the pearls and rubies.

This is a poem about a painting: it is therefore concerned with a concept rather than with a real person, who in any case remains anonymous.
