HEART'S FIRST WORD (2), by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: And all her soft dark hair
Last Line: Of kisses to be kist.
Subject(s): Love; Soldiers' Writings

And all her soft dark hair
Breathed for him like a prayer,
And her white lost face
Was prisoned to some far place.
Love was not denied --
Love's ends would hide,
And flower and fruit and tree
Were under its sea.
Yea, its abundance knelt
Where the nerves felt
The springs of feeling flow
And made pain grow!
There seemed no root or sky,
But a pent infinity
Where apparitions dim
Sculptured each whim
In flame and wandering mist
Of kisses to be kist.
