Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
The Jewess
By Allan Davis
 
HER hair is winged with summer nights,
  Her brow is like the dawn,
Her voice is like an olden song
  That memory lingers on,
And all her movements are as soft        5
  And gentle as a fawn.
 
A lovely mild, and winsome girl
  Of strange and Eastern grace—
I thought, “How happy art thou, child
  In whom all gifts find place,”        10
Till deep within her eyes I saw
  The story of her race.
