THE RE CESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 23 September 1817
THE RE CESS. from the Port Folio. TRUE BEAUTY.* 'Tis not the auburn lock of hair, That plays in ringlets round the fair; ’Tis not her cheek o’erspread with smiles; •Tis not her "Voice which care beguiles; 'Tis 1 not her lips with roses dressed, Where vagrant bees would, fondly res'; ’Tis not her blueeyes’ thrilling glance; not her feet that tread the dance, ’ J is not the grace with which they move, That warms my heart with ardent love. But ’tis her finely polish’d mind, By Virtue’s rarest rules refined; Like Hesper at the eve ol day, When Sol emits his latest ray. Modest and meek without pretence To other charms than charms of sense— To charms which shine when Beauty fades, And wrinkiled age the form invades— To these a lovely nrtfaid aspires, And these awake my bosom’s fires; For they can warm ray throbbing heart, Without the aid of fancy’s art. When time uplifts his palsying hand, And strikes the visage with his wand; When cheeks no more vvi*h ardor glow, And silwerd curls resemb...
