The Maiden is a Swan
With wings of whiter purity
Than the spotless Swan's—

The Swan is a Maiden
With flesh of a softer beauty
Than the yielding Maiden's—

The Swan swaying
Toward the Maiden—
The Maiden leaning childlike
Over to the Swan. ...

My heart is in the grip
Of the tender witchery of their looks—

A Maiden and a Swan.
