INTERMEZZO; PASTORAL: 4. AT GLAN-Y-WERN: WHITE AND ROSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: White-robed against the threefold white
Last Line: A tiger-lily sheathed in white.


White-robed against the threefold white
Of shutter, glass, and curtains' lace,
She flashed into the evening light
The brilliance of her gipsy face:
I saw the evening in her light.

Clear, from the soft hair to the mouth,
Her ardent face made manifest
The sultry beauty of the South:
Below, a red rose, climbing, pressed
Against the roses of her mouth.

So, in the window's threefold white,
O'ertrailed with foliage like a bower,
She seemed, against the evening light,
Among the flowers herself a flower,
A tiger-lily sheathed in white.
