« All quotes from this author
 

An Arab, by his earnest gaze,
Has clothed a lovely maid with blushes;
A smile within his eyelids plays
And into words his longing gushes.

Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is
Christ for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.
