CHAMELEON, by            
First Line: Trembling in a doorway
Last Line: In your dear name . . .
Subject(s): Beauty


Trembling in a doorway
Drenched with rain, the sharp
And desperate urge for you
Held me in its falcon grip.
And oh the lost enchantment over
Common things. . . .

Red and purple asters
On our garden-walk, the willow
Tree brooding over a passive pool
Holding gently its nearer love
The white and fragrant water-lily.

Pale blue clouds acting out
Charades against a brilliant
Salmon "drope" of sky; grass scents
After rain . . . after rain . . .
Oh that was what you used to say!

That all this brave enduring Beauty
Death must leave untouched --
To rise and woo my every grief
In your dear name . . .
