Emily Dickinson - A Charm invests a face

A Charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld --
The Lady dare not lift her Veil
For fear it be dispelled --

But peers beyond her mesh --
And wishes -- and denies --
Lest Interview -- annul a want
That Image -- satisfies --

You've got a typo. It should say, "the lady DARE not lift her veil".
