Portrait of Lady Meux, by James Abbott McNeill Whistler

Did ocean waves obey my word,

Did rocks and hills my power confess,

I’d bid them all with one accord

Proclaim your charms and loveliness.


The bellowing thunder I would make

To join the universal lays,

And all creation should partake

In telling forth your ceaseless praise.
