MRS. AMELIA BALL WELBY (NEE COPPUCK)
American poet
(1819 - 1852)

Her full heart--its own interpreter--translates itself in silence on her cheek.
      - [Silence]

I never saw an eye so bright,
  And yet so soft as hers;
    It sometimes swam in liquid light;
      And sometimes swam in tears;
        It seem'd a beauty set apart
          For softness and for signs.
      - [Eyes]

'T would take an angel from above
  To paint th' immortal soul.
      - [Soul]

The love that is kept in the beauty of trust,
  Cannot pass like the foam from the seas,
    Or a mark that the finger hath trac'd in the dust,
      Where 't is swept by the breath of the breeze.
      - [Constancy]

There's a charm in deliv'ry; a magical art,
  That thrills like a kiss from the lip to the heart;
    'T is the glance--the expression--the well-chosen word--
      By whose magic the depths of the spirit are stirr'd.
        The lips soft persuasion--its musical tone:
          Oh! such were the charms of that eloquent one!
      - [Eloquence]

The purple clusters load the lilac-bushes.
      - Hopeless Love [Lilacs]

The rosebuds lay their crimson lips together.
      - Hopeless Love (st. 5) [Roses]

The twilight hours, like birds flew by,
  As lightly and as free;
    Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
      Ten thousand stars on the sea.
        For every wave with dimpled face
          That leap'd upon the air,
            Had caught a star in its embrace
              And held it trembling there.
      - Musing--Twilight at Sea (st. 4) [Stars]

As the dew to the blossom, the bud to the bee,
  As the scent to the rose, are those memories to me.
      - Pulpit Eloquence [Memory]
