HANDMAIDS of the Queen of Love!
Earth grows white with stars;
Young Fertility is leaping,
Soft the springing grasses teem;
Slothful days have left their sleeping --
You alone do dream!

Maidens of the Queen of Flowers!
Trees hang orange lamps;
All the winds are pollen blowing;
Through the failing golden light
Gentle Gravity is going --
Passion is the Night!

Maidens of the silver feet!
Violent Spring's awake!
Hearts are seeking, birds are nesting;
Earth below and skies above
Teach the hour of sweet unresting: --
All the world is Love!
