Modern Love Xxxii: Full Faith I Have
by George Meredith
Full faith I have she holds that rarest gift
To beauty, Common Sense. To see her lie
With her fair visage an inverted sky

Would almost wreck the faith; but when her mouth

The inner me that thirsts for her no less,
And has so long been languishing in drouth,
Read complete poem
It is easier to exclude harmful passions than to rule them, and to deny them admittance than to control them after they have been admitted.
