Text, Griswold.

EDITORS NOTE.

The writer of these lines had contended that no thought need lack for expression, but now his thoughts of her not even Israfel could utter (see the poem “Israfel”). He cannot speak, think, or feel, for he sees only her. This poem is a blank verse tribute to Mrs. Shew.
