Alexander Pope (1688–1744).  Complete Poetical Works.  1903.
 
Poems of Uncertain Date
To Erinna
 
THO’ sprightly Sappho force our love and praise,
A softer wonder my pleas’d soul surveys,
The mild Erinna, blushing in her bays.
So, while the sun’s broad beam yet strikes the sight,
All mild appears the moon’s more sober light;        5
Serene, in virgin majesty she shines,
And, unobserv’d, the glaring sun declines.
