CISMA DE INGLATERRA: STANZA 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Hast thou not seen, officious with delight
Last Line: His sunflower wings their own funereal pyre?


HAST thou not seen, officious with delight,
Move through the illumined air about the flower
The Bee, that fears to drink its purple light,
Lest danger lurk within that Rose's bower?
Hast thou not marked the moth's enam-oured flight
About the Taper's flame at evening hour,
Till kindle in that monumental fire
His sunflower wings their own funereal pyre?
