madeira-topaz quotes- 4 of
Aunt Jennifer's tigers prance across a screen,
Bright topaz denizens of a world of green.
Green is the night and out of madness woven,
The self-same madness of the astronomers
In this world of overrated pleasures,
Of underrated treasures.
Nay, had she been true,
If heaven would make me such another world
