Anne's Eye is liken'd to the 'Sun',
From it such Beams of Beauty fall;
And 'this' can be denied by none,
For like the 'Sun', it shines on 'All'.
Then do not admiration smother,
Or say these glances don't become her;
To 'you', or 'I', or 'any other'
Her 'Sun', displays perpetual Summer. 2
January 14, 1807.
