CONVERSION, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Light-hearted I walked into the valley wood
Last Line: As any peeping turk to the bosphorus.
Alternate Author Name(s): Hulme, T. E.

Lighthearted I walked into the valley wood
In the time of hyacinths,
Till beauty like a scented cloth
Cast over, stifled me. I was bound
Motionless and faint of breath
By loveliness that is her own eunuch.

Now pass I to the final river
Ignominiously, in a sack, without sound,
As any peeping Turk to the Bosphorus.
