First Line: All the earth a hush of white
Last Line: And . . . Your breast.
Subject(s): Love; Winter

All the earth a hush of white,
White with moonlight all the skies;
Wonder of a winter night --
And . . . your eyes.

Hues no palette dares to claim
Where the spoils of sunken ships
Leap to light in singing flame --
And . . . your lips.

Darkness as the shadows creep
Where the embers sigh to rest;
Silence of a world asleep --
And . . . your breast.
