POMMES D'OR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: At my door, a boy came knocking
Last Line: At their dead hearts I peep in, sir.
Subject(s): Love

AT my door, a boy came knocking,
Crying loudly, "Apples mellow,
Apples sweet and golden yellow,"
In his eyes a laugh was mocking;
Love, I know thee,
Vain thy knocking.

For such fruit did Adam sin, sir;
Paris, in an evil hour,
Chose a prize from out thy bower;
Venus' glorious charms to dower;
Go, see their mark of beauty's thin, sir,
At their dead hearts I peep in, sir.
