Poemetry: Beyond Compare

Diamonds do not suit you, dear;

Diamonds dull in compare to you.

Cloudy clings the downy dew

To grass and roses colorless clear,

With cap and countenance severe,

When nearer you appear in view.

Darkness dims and sunlight skulks,

Seas hush and quiet breakers sulk;

Tigers purr and lions mew

And in dread brandish a breathing balk,

Sighing a submissive rue:

All things are lessened next to you.
