Poem by Louise Imogen Guiney

Of Joans Youth

I would unto my fair restore
A simple thing:
The flushing cheek she had before!
No more, no more,
By Severn shore,
The carmine grape, the moths auroral wing.

Ah, say how winds in flooded grass
Unmoor the rose;
Or guileful ways the salmon pass
To sea, disclose;
For so, alas,
With Love, alas,
With fatal, fatal Love a girlhood goes.
