First Line: Berrybrown, berrybrown, give me your hands!
Last Line: God made desire before he made death.
Subject(s): God; Desire


Berrybrown, Berrybrown, give me your hands!
Here in the bracken shade will we not well
Wring the warm summer world dry of its honey?
God made a heaven before He made hell.
Berrybrown, Berrybrown, give me your eyes;
Let their shy quivering rapture and deep
Melt as they merge in mine melting above them!
God made surrender before He made sleep.
Berrybrown, Berrybrown, give me your mouth,
Till all is done 'twixt a breath and a breath!
Naught shall undo the one joy-deed for ever,
God made desire before He made death.
