41. Corona Inutilis
 
By James Lister Cuthbertson
 
 
I TWINED a wreath of heather white
  To bind my lady’s hair,
And deemed her locks in even light
  Would well the burden bear;
But when I saw the tresses brown,        5
  And found the face so fair,
I tore the wreath, and left the crown
  Of beauty only there.
