{For Helen}

Dark Beauty, how is it you never change?
Should not your beauty fade as years go by?
Whilst I grow old, I find it somewhat strange
That timeโ€™s accursed attrition you defy.
But still of course your beauty you deny โ€”
What this admirer spies you do not see.
But be assured, his eyes they never lie,
And surely would discerning eyes agree.
Itโ€™s true, and yet a mystery to me โ€”
A very pleasant one; how is it so,
That loveliness so lasts โ€” how can it be?
You cannot tell me, for you do not know.
Perhaps, Dark Beauty, that is why you are
As everlasting as the evening star.
