Sydney Thompson Dobell (Сидней Томпсон Добелл)


To the Authoress of


Were Shakspeare born a twin, his lunar twin
(Not of the golden but the silver bow)
Should be like thee: so, with such eyes and brow,
Sweeten his looks, so, with her dear sex in
His voice, (a king's words writ out by the queen,)
Unman his bearded English, and, with flow
Of breastfull robes about her female snow,
Present the lordly brother. Oh Last-of-kin,
There be ambitious women here on earth
Who will not thank thee to have sung so well!
Apollo and Diana are one birth,
Pollux and Helen break a single shell.
Who now may hope? While Adam was alone
Eve was to come. She came; God's work was done.

  1. On Receiving a Book from Dante Rossetti
  2. The Olive
  3. The Army Surgeon
  4. On the Death of Mrs. Browning
  5. A Statesman
