Poem by Thomas Hardy

A Winsome Woman


Theres no winsome woman so winsome as she;
Some are flower-like in mouth,
Some have fire in the eyes,
Some feed a souls drouth
Trilling words music-wise;
But where are these gifts all in one found to be
Save in her known to me?

What her thoughts are I read not, but this much I know,
That she, too, will pass
From the sun and the air
To her cave under grass;
And the world will declare,
No such woman as his passioned utterances show
Walked this planet, we trow!
