... HER hair like shredded brass
Is piled in a cool mass;
Her face is cut from stone—
The warmth it will not own
Awhile unguarded glows
In her deep eyes' repose.
Hands whose touch has stilled
The strong and somber-willed
Lie curving, jewel-free,
Lightly upon her knee.
She smiles, whose thoughts are far...
I know not where they are.

What passionate word can stir
The cold, cold heart of her?
