    And stays—no fancy has she for flitting;
    —John Milton Hay (1838–1905)

    Came vested all in white, pure as her mind.
    Her face was veiled; yet to my fancied sight
    Love, sweetness, goodness, in her person shined
    So clear as in no face with more delight.
    But, O! as to embrace me she inclined,
    I waked, she fled, and day brought back my night.
