Letitia Elizabeth Landon Quote

I've thought upon thy brow when Night
Threw o'er my pallet her summer moonlight,
And I have looked on the midnight sky
To catch the depth and light of thy eye ;
I painted from these and from memory,
For I could not paint when I looked on thee.


(28th April 1824) Raphael Showing his Mistress her Portrait By Mr. Brockedon. (British Gallery.) - The London Literary Gazette
