First Line: Her speech like a tame serpent hiss
Last Line: To live when she dies?
Subject(s): Women


HER speech like a tame serpent hisses;
She glows like a flower of the south;
The bruises of yesterday's kisses
Are purple to-day on her mouth.
Time bears from her beauty no plunder
Nor kindles a soul in her eyes;
And to-morrow -- what is there, I wonder,
To live when she dies?
