Your face is the flush of Eos:
You are dawn.
Your face is Greece.
Under your lifted arm
There is lavender to kiss;
Sea-lavender, spiced with salt.
Before the fierce cyclamen wine has burnt my lips,
I kiss your limbs, wild followers of Artemis.
Your eyes break sleep!
I touch the pansy set below your heart;
Each kiss a star
That fades upon your body, which is dawn.
April scent of your throat,
O spiced flowers of your shoulders,
Will you shrink from the lion, my heart?
