ECHO FROM LESBOS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If she be fair
Last Line: At the end of the bough.
Subject(s): Love

If she be fair,
Give her my love and duty;
If she be truly fair,
Give her my love.

Sweet and delicate and rare,
At the end of a wind-blown, fragrant bough
The apple swings:
If I, who fly no more, had wings,
Or if my wizardry knew how,
I'd wing to where that sweetness swings
At the end of the bough.
