Away My Verse

Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)

AWAY my verse; and never fear,

As men before such beauty do;

On you she will not look severe,

She will not turn her eyes from you.

Some happier graces could I lend

That in her memory you should live,

Some little blemishes might blend,

For it would please her to forgive.
