First Line: What is that spreading light far over the sea
Last Line: But yvonne with her scarlet mouth?
Subject(s): Beauty


What is that spreading light far over the sea,
In the thin cool dawn, in the wash of the summer air,
When the planets pale
And the soft winds fail
But Yvonne with her yellow hair?
What is that deep, dark shine in the heart of the sea,
The glory and glow and darkle and dim surprise,
Melting and clear
Beyond fathom of fear,
But Yvonne with her smoke-blue eyes?
What is that burning disk on the rim of the sea,
When autumn brush fires smoulder and birds go South,
When twilight fills
The imperial hills,
But Yvonne with her scarlet mouth?
