Subject(s): Love

ONCE more the Lad with golden hair
His purple ball across the air
Flings at me, true to aim;
And light her broidered slippers go,
That Lesbian lass, -- my playfellow
As Love would set the game.

O Lesbos isle is tight and trim . . .
She's not the breed to pleasure him,
Another game she plays;
My hair mislikes her, grown so white;
There's someone lovelier in her sight
Who draws that callow gaze.
