So patient and so silent and so deep
In poised reflection our tall model rests:
In contemplation, perhaps, of a leap;
Or preparation for equestrian tests!
What patient meditations on a move!
So rapt in calm reserve and stern resolve!
She muses, perhaps, on what to improve,
On what precise adjustment to involve!
The artists all around her all reflect:
All contemplate on just what to improve;
With all their careful measures to inspect
Consider what to add or to remove;
Decide, in calm reserve and stern resolve
On what precise adjustments to involve.
