"Oh, poet-heart, that from the senseless marble/ this dream of beauty and perfection wrought--/ what shapes divine% What rare, celestial beauty/ thy soul hath mirrored to conceive the thought./ Through the rich chambers of thy glowing fancy/ moved fairer forms, with more of queenly grace;/ but thy true genius seized the perfect woman--/ the first fair mother of an exile race./ No need to tell us here the old-time story;/ e'en while we gaze the unbidden tears will start--/ the electric truth prisoned within the marble/ thrills at a glance the appreciative heart./ Fair type of erring womanhood repentant./ Bid the censorious world draw near, and tell,/ when its harsh code condemns thy weaker children,/ "fresh from the hands of god I sinned and fell."--From the "Home Journal." [P. 29.]
