I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
...
After which you led me to water
And bade me drink, which I did, owing to your kindness.
...
The foolish fears of what might happen.
I cast them all away
...
Let the palings of her bed
Be quince and box-wood overlaid
...
The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard
And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood,
...

...
For the mutable, rank-scented meiny, let them
Regard me as I do not flatter, and
Therein behold themselves.
Odors blown sweet as infants' naked flesh,
Soft as oboes, green as a studded plain,
...
A scented sorrow, corseted!
