IDEALISM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I know the woman has no soul, I know
Last Line: Music, the divine human harmony.
Subject(s): Idealism


I know the woman has no soul, I know
The woman has no possibilities
Of soul or mind or heart, but merely is
The masterpiece of flesh: well, be it so.
It is her flesh that I adore; I go
Thirsting afresh to drain her empty kiss;
I know she cannot love: 'tis not for this
I rush to her embraces like a foe.
Tyrannously I crave, I crave alone,
Her body, now a silent instrument,
That at my touch shall wake and make for me
The strains that I have dreamed of, and not known;
Her perfect body, Earth's most eloquent
Music, the divine human harmony.
