And, as her way affronting, forth she hied,
Her ev’ry gesture such a grace expirèd,
Stars, Skies and Aether’s circumabient tide,

Such vitl spirits in all life ispirèd;
The frigid poles with torrid ardours burnèd,
And spheres of Artic frost ro flame were turnèd.

It’s better to go to the wikipedia here and here to learn more about this poet of ours and his work.
Alexandra – Happy Hearts at Home
Irene – The Green Greek
And last one is everybody who would like to make this.
