The day before it was your soft brown eyes
That caught me up
And set my heart beating faster
As to a gypsy rhythm.
Less---much less---than a week ago---
Absentmindedly, I hasten to add---
I noticed the incredibly beautiful
Curve of cheek, the soft fall of dark hair
(That I see yet in my dreams),
A small, pink alabaster ear---
All in excellent harmony!
Thus it must have been
In the Garden of Eden
As God composed his First Symphony!
