I'm looking for the face I had Before the world was made

I need to get down and take some pics of the garden. TONIGHT! I hope. So, until I have something better to share, read this gem!

"Before the world was made"

If I make the lashes dark
And the eyes more bright
And the lips more scarlet,
Or ask if all be right
From mirror after mirror,
No vanity's displayed:
I'm looking for the face I had
Before the world was made.

What if I look upon a man

As though on my beloved,
And my blood be cold the while
And my heart unmoved?
Why should he think me cruel
Or that he is betrayed?
I'd have him love the thing that was
Before the world was made.

--W. B. Yeats
