PALM SONG, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Oh, my sweetly beloved, your countenance is my palmgarden
Last Line: Oh, my sweetly beloved.
Subject(s): Bible; Palm Trees


Oh, my sweetly beloved, your countenance is my palm-garden,
Your eyes are shimmering Niles,
Languidly girdling my dance.

In your countenance bewitched
Are all the imaginings of my blood,
All the nights that mirrored themselves in me.

When your lips open
My beatitudes are bewrayed.

Always this throbbing toward you—
And already my soul has been offered up.

You must kiss me hotly,
Golden plaything of my heart;
We shall hide ourselves in heaven,
Oh, my sweetly beloved.
