FLOWERS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: From a golden stadium
Last Line: Sturdy young roses to the marble terraces.

From a golden stadium-amid silken cords, gray chiffons, green velvets, and
discs of crystal blackening like bronze in the sun-I see the foxglove open on a
rug of silver filigree, of eyes, and flowing hair.
Yellow gold-pieces lie strewn over agate, mahogany pillars support a dome of
emeralds, bouquets of white satin, and delicate stalks of rubies gird the water
Like a snow-limbed god with enormous blue eyes, sea and sky lure the throng of
sturdy young roses to the marble terraces.
