Lord Byron

On A Cornelian Heart Which Was Broken

Ill-fated Heart! And can it be, That thou should’st thus be rent in vain? Have years of care for thine and thee Alike been all employ’d in vain? Yet precious seems each shatter’d part And every fragment dearer grown Since he who wears thee feels thou art A fitter emblem of his own.
