"BEHOLD, half willing, half afraid,/ Her bath to enter, and grasping still/ Her embroider'd robes, the Persian Maid awaits her dusky handmaid's skill. And now, her ear,--a rose leaf small,--/ The clustered orient pearls must leave,/ When down her heavy tresses fall,/ Like mist that shrouds the starry eve. Oh% never pale and spotless pearl/ When first from ocean's depths conveyed,/ Was yet as pure as this fair girl,/ Shrinking, half willing, half afraid." [P. 8.]
