And did thy fortunate fingers sometime dwell (within a greener shadow of secret bowers) among the curves of that delicious boy whose serious grace one goddess loved too well? Chryselephantine Zeus Olympian sceptred colossus of the Pheidian soul whose eagle frights creation,in whose palm Nike presents the crown sweetest to man, whose lilied robe the sun's white hands emboss, betwixt whose absolute feet anoint with calm of intent stars circling the acerb pole poises,smiling,the diadumenos 4 in whose young chiseled eyes the people saw their once again victorious Pantarkes (whose grace the prince of artists made him bold to imitate between the feet of awe), thunderer whose omnipotent brow showers its curls of unendured eternal gold over the infinite breast in bright degrees, whose pillow is the graces and the hours, father of gods and men whose subtle throne twain sphinxes bear each with a writhing youth caught to her brazen breasts,whose foot-stool tells how fought the looser of the warlike zone of her that brought forth tall Hippolytus, lord on whose pedestal the deep expels (over Selene's car closing uncouth) of Helios the sweet wheels tremulous— are there no kings in Argos,that the song is silent,of the steep unspeaking tower within whose brightening strictness Danae saw the night severed and the glowing throng descend,felt on her flesh the amorous strain of gradual hands and yielding to that fee her eager body's unimmortal flower knew in the darkness a more burning rain?

2. And still the mad magnificent herald Spring assembles beauty from forgetfulness with the wild trump of April: witchery of sound and odour drives the wingless thing man forth into bright air,for now the red leaps in the maple's cheek,and suddenly by shining hordes in sweet unserious dress ascends the golden crocus from the dead. On dappled dawn forth rides the pungent sun with hooded day preening upon his hand followed by gay untimidfinalflowers (which dressed in various tremulous armor stun the eyes of ragged earth who sees them pass) while hunted from his kingdom winter cowers, seeing green armies steadily expand hearing the spear-song of the marching grass.

Little kittens who are called spring, is what we stroke maybe asleep? or maybe did something go away ever so quietly when we weren't looking. 3i V Tumbling-hair picker of buttercups violets dandelions And the big bullying daisies through the field wonderful with eyes a little sorry Another comes also picking flowers 32 ORIENTALE I i spoke to thee with a smile and thou didst not answer thy mouth is as a chord of crimson music Come hither O thou,is life not a smile? i spoke to thee with a song and thou didst not listen thine eyes are as a vase of divine silence Come hither O thou,is life not a song?
