A Picture And Poetry #2

 My dark-hair'd girl, thy ringlets deck,
In silken curl, thy graceful neck;
Thy neck is like the swan, and fair as the pearl,
And light as air the step is of my dark-haired girl.

My dark-haired girl, upon thy lip
The dainty bee might wish to sip;
For thy lip it is the rose, and thy teeth they are pearl,
And diamond is the eye of my dark-haired girl! 

My dark-haired girl, I've promised thee,
And thou thy faith hast given to me, 
And oh, I would not change for the crown of an earl
The pride of being loved by my dark-hair'd girl! 
-Samuel Lover
