“A Valentine to _____” –Poe

For her this rhyme is penned, whose luminous eyes,Brightly expressive as the twins of Leda,Shall find her own sweet name, that nestling liesUpon the page, enwrapped from every reader.Search narrowly the lines!- they hold a treasureDivine- a talisman- an amuletThat must be worn at heart. Search well the measure-

frances

The second letter of the second line is the second letter of her name. The third letter of the third line is the third letter of her name. And so on and so on.
