Revenge

Rating: 3.6
Ay, gaze upon her rose-wreathed hair,
And gaze upon her smile;
Seem as you drank the very air
Her breath perfumed the while:

And wake for her the gifted line,
That wild and witching lay,
And swear your heart is as a shrine,
That only owns her sway.
'Tis well: I am revenged at last,—

Go thou and watch her lightest sigh, — Thine own it will not be; And bask beneath her sunny eye, — It will not turn on thee. great write 10+++++

Simple and sentimental must be the most puerile and inane criticism ever aimed at a poet. In this age of novelties, we should not forget that Landon was startlingly original, of internationally fame and hugely influential. One might accept the combination of 'cold and sentimental' and 'flat and intense'. That intensity is certainly evident in 'Revenge' but it is not unusual and the powerful undercurrents in her work are not that difficult to spot.

........truly a great write....now she feels revenged....after giving him her heart and he smashed it to pieces....for she knows he isn't loved as well.... ~'Tis well: I am revenged at last, Mark you that scornful cheek, The eye averted as you pass'd, Spoke more than words could speak. .....and the last line says it all ~For thou art nor beloved. ~

In response to Greg Hutchinson: the correct word is not. At some point, a typo occurred and has continued. See page 135 of _The Poetical Works of Miss Landon: Complete_ published in 1839. You can find it via a Google search: google books complete works of miss landon.
