Yet a semblance of resource avails us-

Shade so finely touched, love's sense must seize it.

Take these lines, look lovingly and nearly,

Lines I write the first time and the last time.120

He who works in fresco, steals a hair-brush,

Curbs the liberal hand, subservient proudl

y,

Cramps his spirit, crowds its all in little,

Makes a strange art of an art familiar,

Fills his lady's missal-marge with flowerets.125

He who blows through bronze may breathe through silver,

Fitly serenade a slumbrous princess.

He who writes may write for once as I do.
