Criterion

When you are mixed with many I descry
A single light, and judge the rest thereby.
But when you are alone with me, why then,
I quite forget all women and all men.

by Hilaire Belloc

Such a brilliant poem by Hilaire Belloc......
This person wraps the poet in charms he finds overwhelming
What an epigrammatic poem! His companion is so bright as light, he certainly cannot remember all men and women!
