TAMPICO, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, cut me reeds to blow upon
Last Line: Always asks it back.


Oh, cut me reeds to blow upon,
Or gather me a star,
But leave the sultry passion-flowers
Growing where they are.

I fear their sombre yellow deeps,
Their whirling fringe of black,
And he who gives a passion-flower
Always asks it back.
