Landon in The Literary Gazette 1824/Song 12
Literary Gazette, 4th September, 1824, Pages 572
It is not for your eagle eye,
Though bright its glance may be—
It is not for your sunny smile,
That, Ulric, I love thee.
It is not for your marble brow,
Nor for your raven hair;
It is not that you ride the ring,
And wear thy colours there.
It is not for your gifts of gold,
Not for your lute's sweet chords;
It is not for your lordly birth,
Nor for your honied words:—
But it is that I deem your heart
Is given quite to me:
You love me, and can I do less,
Dear Ulric, than love thee?
