I met a lady in the meads, Full beautiful, a faery’s child;

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful, a faery’s child;
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.
— John Keats, La Belle Dame sans Merci


There is a beautiful painting of this poem by Frank Dicksee. (However, the copyright is unclear, hence the link only.)
