Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (Фредерик Годдард Такерман)

Second Series. 15. Gertrude and Gulielma, sister-twins

Gertrude and Gulielma, sister-twins,
Dwelt in the valley at the farmhouse old;
Nor grief had touched their locks of dark and gold
Nor dimmed the fragrant whiteness of their skins:
Both beautiful, and one in height and mould;
Yet one had loveliness which the spirit wins
To other worlds: eyes, forehead, smile and all,
More softly serious than the twilight's fall.
The other -- can I e'er forget the day
When, stealing from a laughing group away,
To muse with absent eye and motion slow,
Her beauty fell upon me like a blow? --
Gertrude! with red flowerlip, and silk black hair!
Yet Gulielma was by far more fair.
