Later Poems
Celia
 
CELIA, we know, is sixty-five,
  Yet Celia’s face is seventeen;
Thus winter in her breast must live,
  While summer in her face is seen.
 
How cruel Celia’s fate, who hence        5
  Our heart’s devotion cannot try;
Too pretty for our reverence,
  Too ancient for our gallantry!
