FEAR, by                    
First Line: Not only this golden moment's wine
Last Line: And there is nothing for you but the taste of the grapes!
Subject(s): Fear; Grapes; Pain; Suffering; Misery


Not only this golden moment's wine,
Lush of rich hours,
But all the sharp, spring-time hunger of the vine,
Yearning through showers
Of troubling rain,
All the young, questing pain
Of roots, and languorous agony of hot, still nights
Heavy with fruitage of unplucked delights --
Ah love, if the subtler flavor of my gift escapes
And there is nothing for you but the taste of the grapes!
