Beautiful art! my worship is for thee,---
The heart's entire devotion. When I look
Upon thy radiant wonders, every pulse
Is thrill'd as in the presence of divinity!
Pictures, bright pictures, oh! they are to me
A world for mind to revel in. I love
To give a history to every face, to think,---
As I thought with the painter,--as I knew
What his high communing had been.-----L. E. L.
