Cressida

Beauty that is deadly;
A poison to his eyes
Figure that is engrossing;
A pleasure to his desires
Her thoughts are kingdom;
An Athenaeum of wisdom
Her words are strong and lucid;
A serene, placid sound.
Such beauty fell in love
To Troilus, a favored man.
Pledged an everlasting love;
Turned faithless, and gone.
