ÆSTHETIC PAPERS.


EDITED BY


ELIZABETH P. PEABODY.




"Beautie is not as fond men misdeeme,

An outward show of things that only seeme.

       

Vouchsafe, then, O Thou most Almightie Spright!

From whom all gifts of wit and knowledge flow,
To shed into my breast some sparkling light
Of thine Eternall Truth, that I may show
Some little beames to mortall eyes below
Of that immortall Beautie, there with Thee,
Which in my weake distraughted mynd I see."
