A MOOD, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: You are so light and gay
Last Line: It knows where it would go.
Subject(s): Beauty

You are so light and gay,
So slight, sweet maid --
Your limbs like leaves in play,
Or beams that grasses braid;
O! Joys whose jewels pray
My breast to be inlaid.

Frail fairy of the streets;
Strong, dainty lure;
For all men's eyes the sweets
Whose lack makes hearts so poor;
While your heart loveless beats,
Light, laughing, and impure.

O! Fragrant waft of flesh,
Float through me so --
My limbs are in your mesh,
My blood forgets to flow;
Ah! Lilied meadows fresh,
It knows where it would go.
