Miss Benedetta Ramus. George Romney (British, 1734 - 1802).
Mysterious Benedetta! who
That Reynolds or that Romney drew
Was ever half so fair as you,
Or is so well forgot?
These eyes of melancholy brown,
These woven locks, a shadowy crown,
Must surely have bewitched the town;
Yet you’re remembered not.
From Benedetta Ramos, Andrew Lang, Ballads in Blue China (1880)
