Ralph Waldo Emerson, comp. (1803–1882).  Parnassus: An Anthology of Poetry.  1880.
 
My Charmer
By Edmund Waller (1606–1687)
 
SWEETNESS, truth, and every grace
Which time and use are wont to teach,
The eye may in a moment reach
And read distinctly in her face.
 
Some other nymphs with colors faint        5
And pencil slow, may Cupid paint,
And a weak heart in time destroy;
She has a stamp, and prints the boy.
