Subject(s): Love

HOW many feet ran with sunlight, water, and air?

What little devils shaken of laughter, cramming their little ribs with

Fixed this lone red tulip, a woman's mouth of passion kisses, a nun's
mouth of sweet thinking, here topping a straight line of green, a
pillar stem?

Who hurled this bomb of red caresses? -- nodding balloon-film shooting
its wireless every fraction of a second these June days:
Love me before I die;
Love me -- love me now.
