Edward Coote Pinkney
Her every tone is music's own,
Like those of morning birds,
And something more than melody
Dwells ever in her words.
Pinkney quotes
I fill this cup to one made up
Of loveliness alone,
A woman, of her gentle sex
The seeming paragon;
To whom the better elements
And kindly stars have given
A form so fair, that, like the air,
'T is less of earth than heaven.
Look out upon the stars, my love,
And shame them with thine eyes.

Pinkney Edward Coote quotes
A Health, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
