smile blooms like a wondrous flower,
Your eyes glow green and grow in our
Garden sown with Earth’s delight.
lips ope like Spring’s soft bud:
Fluttering hearts o’er-swell with blood:
Tongues sip nectar, wings take flight.
from shadows rich and sweet,
Billow as we pluck and eat
A fruit from Knowledge’s tree, dense,
lie upon the mossy bed,
Where poor Eve fell and cried and bled
Before the saints were banished hence.
rains from cloudless skies
That blush as Cupid’s arrow flies,
Its tip all smeared with ecstasies.
of joy burst from the earth
And in the white foam has its birth
