porphyry quotes- 4 of
Blue hampers . . . Explosions,
Ice . . . The ridiculous
O heart, small urn
of porphyry, agate or cornelian,
Now sleeps the crimson petal, now the white;
Nor waves the cypress in the palace walk;
Don't pity me now,
Don't pity me never;
I'm going to do nothing
For ever and ever.
