'I was a goodly stripling then;At seventy years I so may say, That there were few, or boys or men,Who, in my dawning time of day,Of vassal or of knight's degree, Could vie in vanities with me; For I had strength, youth, gaiety, A port, not like to this ye see, But smooth, as all is rugged now;For time, and care, and war, have ploughed My very soul from out my brow;And thus I should be disavowedBy all my kind and kin, could theyCompare my day and yesterday;This change was wrought, too, long ere ageHad ta'en my features for his page:With years, ye know, have not declinedMy strength, my courage, or my mind,Or at this hour I should not beTelling old tales beneath a tree,With starless skies my canopy.But let me on: Theresa's form--Methinks it glides before me now,Between me and yon chestnut's bough,The memory is so quick and warm;And yet I find no words to tellThe shape of her I loved so well:She had the Asiatic eye,Such as our, Turkish neighbourhood,Hath mingled with our Polish blood,Dark as above us is the sky;But through it stole a tender light,Like the first moonrise of midnight;Large, dark, and swimming in the stream,Which seemed to melt to its own beam;All love, half langour, and half fire,Like saints that at the stake expire,And lift their raptured looks on high,As though it were a joy to die.A brow like a midsummer lake,Transparent with the sun therein,When waves no murmur dare to make,And heaven beholds her face within.A cheek and lip--but why proceed?I loved her then--I love her still;And such as I am, love indeedIn fierce extremes--in good and ill.But still we love even in our rage,And haunted to our very ageWith the vain shadow of the past,As is Mazeppa to the lastVI.
