ITALIAN QUATRAIN: SABBATH MORNING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Beyond my room's rose-covered convent wall
Last Line: I'll swear that satyr's stone mouth grinned at me!
Subject(s): Italy; Sabbath; Italians; Sunday


Beyond my room's rose-covered convent wall
I hear the priests chanting; lusty pagans bawl
Their Latin words . . What stirred the ilex-tree?
I'll swear that satyr's stone mouth grinned at me!
