    Portia

    (To Ellen Terry)

    I marvel not Bassanio was so bold
    To peril all he had upon the lead,
    Or that proud Aragon bent low his head
    Or that Morocco's fiery heart grew cold:
    For in that gorgeous dress of beaten gold
    Which is more golden than the golden sun
    No woman Veronese looked upon
    Was half so fair as thou whom I behold.
    Yet fairer when with wisdom as your shield
    The sober-suited lawyer's gown you donned,
    And would not let the laws of Venice yield
    Antonio's heart to that accursed Jew--
    O Portia! take my heart: it is thy due:
    I think I will not quarrel with the Bond.
