To The River --

Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
  Of crystal, wandering water,
  Thou art an emblem of the glow
  Of beauty- the unhidden heart-
  The playful maziness of art
  In old Alberto's daughter;

  But when within thy wave she looks-
  Which glistens then, and trembles-
  Why, then, the prettiest of brooks
  Her worshipper resembles;
  For in his heart, as in thy stream,
  Her image deeply lies-
  His heart which trembles at the beam
  Of her soul-searching eyes.
