First Line: I loved you - beautiful, bizarre
Last Line: A song -- a star.
Subject(s): Love

I loved you -- beautiful, bizarre:
Wide mouth, live red as poppies are;
Hair black as black-splashed hearts of them;
Slim, slender as a poppy stem;
Nor dreamed till you lay -- vivid -- dead,
That always I had loved instead
A song -- a star.
