With lithe young body sheathed in cloth-of-gold,
She gleams in undulating arrogance;
With every measure of the dance
Her golden limbs are softly aureoled.

She gleams in undulating arrogance --
A statue poured from some diviner mold.
Her golden limbs are softly aureoled
As toward the flaming altars they advance.

A statue poured from some diviner mold --
Her body bends and sways as in a trance,
As toward the flaming altars they advance:
She climbs the steps, a goddess unconsoled --

Her body bends and sways as in a trance,
The violins die out, the fires grow cold:
She climbs the steps, a goddess unconsoled.
To greet her Lord in virgin arrogance!
