happy birthday wishes

for alice my beautiful daughter today

Her face
so fair
first bent
mine eye
Her tongue
so sweet
then drew
mine ear
Her wit
so sharp
then hit
my heart
Mine eye
to like
her face
doth lead
Mine ear
to learn
her tongue
doth teach
My Heart
to love
het wit
doth move
Her face
with beams
doth blind
mine eye
Her tongue
with sounds
doth charm
mine ear
Her wit
with art
doth knit
my heart
Mine eye
with life
her face
doth feed
Mine ear
with hope
her tongue
doth feast
My heart
with skill
her wit
doth fill
O face
with frowns
wrong not
mine eye
O tongue
with cheeks
vex not
mine ear
O wit
with smart
wound not
my heart
This eye
shall joy
her face
to serve
This ear
shall yield
her tongue
to trust
This heart
shall swear
her wit
to fear.

taken from Sir Arthur Gorges in the Penguin’s Poems for Love, selected by Laura Barber
