Beauty Clear and Fair

Written by: John Gould Fletcher | Biography
 | Quotes (7) |
 BEAUTY clear and fair,
 Where the air
Rather like a perfume dwells;
 Where the violet and the rose
 Their blue veins and blush disclose,
And come to honour nothing else:

 Where to live near
 And planted there
Is to live, and still live new;
 Where to gain a favour is
 More than light, perpetual bliss--
Make me live by serving you!

Dear, again back recall
 To this light,
A stranger to himself and all!
 Both the wonder and the story
 Shall be yours, and eke the glory;
I am your servant, and your thrall.
