Text: Edgar Allan Poe, "To --" (C), Burton's Gentleman's Magazine, August 1839, 5:75

[page 75, continued:]

TO ——.
[column 1:]

Fair maiden, let thy generous heart
    From its present pathway part not —
Being every thing which now thou art,
    Be nothing which thou art not.
So with the world thy gentle ways, [column 2:]
    Thy unassuming beauty,
Thy truth — shall be a theme of praise
    Forever, and love a duty.
