Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
H. Coleridge
 
CLXXV. "She is not fair to outward view"
 
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,         5
A well of love, a spring of light. 
  
But now her looks are coy and cold, 
  To mine they ne'er reply, 
And yet I cease not to behold 
  The love-light in her eye:  10
Her very frowns are fairer far 
Than smiles of other maidens are.
