Subject(s): Lunch


A GOTHIC window, where a damask curtain
Made the blank daylight shadowy and uncertain:
A slab of agate on four eagle-talons
Held trimly up and neatly taught to balance:
A porcelain dish, o'er which in many a cluster
Black grapes hung down, dead-ripe and without lustre:
A melon cut in thin, delicious slices:
A cake that seemed mosaic-work in spices:
Two China cups with golden tulips sunny,
And rich inside with chocolate like honey:
And she and I the banquet-scene completing
With dreamy words -- and very pleasant eating!
