The fairest thing in mortal eyes by Charles, Duke of Orléans

.

Translated by Henry Francis Cary.

Addressed to his deceased wife, who died in childbed at the age of twenty-two

Part 2 of 3.

Above her lieth spread a tomb
Of gold and sapphires blue:
The gold doth show her blessedness,
The sapphires mark her true;
For blessedness and truth in her
Were livelily portrayed,
When gracious God with both his hands
Her goodly substance made.
He framed her in such wondrous wise,
She was, to speak without disguise,
The fairest thing in mortal eyes.
