in the music of white sparks

like fluffy leaves of sleep.

Or the pink, fairy, fluffy evening moth
On June-drunk beds of roses red,--lies thrown.

She drops a pearl into every throat.

And when the rain or fog or mist drive rival crimps a-wreck,
Her fluffy hair goes curling like a kinked-up ostrich feather
Around her ears and forehead and the white nape of her neck.
