First Line: With narrow eyes below soft chains, a slave
Last Line: Without the apparatus of pure thought.
Subject(s): Introspection


With narrow eyes below soft chains, a slave
Empties my vases, in the mirror dives,
Extends to the secret bed her pure, white hands:
Within these walls a modest woman moves
Who in my reverie cuts through my vision,
Never once endangering abstraction,
As by a simple glass the sun is caught
Without the apparatus of pure thought.
