Ralph Waldo Emerson, comp. (1803–1882).  Parnassus: An Anthology of Poetry.  1880.
 
Woman
By John Wilson (Christopher North) (1785–1854)
 
Translated from Calidasa

THERE in the fane a beauteous creature stands,
The first best work of the Creator’s hands,
Whose slender limbs inadequately bear
A full-orbed bosom and a weight of care;
Whose teeth like pearls, whose lips like cherries, show,        5
And fawn-like eyes still tremble as they glow.
