SAKI, by            
First Line: Slender bough a-swing
Last Line: Sunset's flaming rose.


Slender bough a-swing
On a swelling dune,
Fruit of flame a-swoon
My heart gathering.

Curling tresses slide
O'er his cheeks; behold
Over silver, gold
Streaming liquified.

Perfect loveliness
Dwells upon his brow;
Lovely is the bough
In his leafy dress.

Aureate the cup
In his fingers gleams;
Over dawn meseems
Day is mounting up.
Wine, the sun, swings high
Westward to his lips,
And his finger-tips
Frame its eastern sky.
Down his throat it flows
To the sleep it seeks,
Leaving in his cheeks
Sunset's flaming rose.
