Letitia Elizabeth Landon Quote

One of the loveliest daughters of that land,
Divinest Greece ! that taught the painter's hand
To give eternity to loveliness ;
One of those dark-eyed maids, to whom belong
The glory and the beauty of each Song
Thy poets breathed, for it was theirs to bless
With life the pencil and the lyre's dreams,
Giving reality to visioned gleams
Of bright divinities.


Leander and Hero from The London Literary Gazette (22nd February 1823) - The Vow of the Peacock (1835)
