Hartley Coleridge. (1796–1849)
 
 
1
    The soul of man is larger than the sky,
  Deeper than ocean, or the abysmal dark
  Of the unfathomed center.
          To Shakespeare.
2
                On this hapless earth
There ’s small sincerity of mirth,
And laughter oft is but an art
To drown the outcry of the heart.
          Address to certain Gold-fishes.
3
    She is not fair to outward view
    As many maidens be;
Her loveliness I never knew
    Until she smiled on me:
Oh! then I saw her eye was bright,
A well of love, a spring of light.
          Song. She is not fair.
4
    Her very frowns are fairer far
Than smiles of other maidens are.
          Song. She is not fair.
