Some fine versifyin'

This goes out to the few of you true romantics left out there amongst the cynical, blog-reading masses. Failing that, if you are not in fact romantic this still may be of some use to you when you are looking for a more original compliment to pay to your lady friend than "wow, you look really, really hot":
"A woman of so shining loveliness
That men threshed corn at midnight by a tress,
A little stolen tress."
Written by -- who else? -- the master, W.B. Yeats. The full poem can be read here.
