She dwelt among th’ untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove,
A Maid whom there were none to praise
And very few to love.
A Violet by a mossy stone5
Half-hidden from the Eye !
—Fair, as a star when only one
Is shining in the sky !
She liv’d unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceas’d to be;10
But she is in her Grave, and Oh !
The difference to me.
