COITUS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The gilded phaloi of the crocuses
Last Line: The night about us is restless.


The gilded phaloi of the crocuses
are thrusting at the spring air.
Here is there naught of dead gods
But a procession of festival,
A procession, O Giulio Romano,
Fit for your spirit to dwell in.
Dione, your nights are upon us.

The dew is upon the leaf.
The night about us is restless.
