NEVER again
The world all gold,
Repured and cold,
And carved like a great brazen incense cup!
To gods of old
This rare barbaric perfume riseth up
Never again.

Never again
Yon sorceries
May burn the trees
That on the green horizon dream to death.
Rich tears like these
Upon your lids: upon my lip such breath
Never again!
