perfume kiss upon the drowsy air is sweet as spring can hold within her walls the spell which night may cast upon her thralls is mine the length all this gloomy land knows no more Sun than false from my white hand my wealth grape Kings have prayed for in their pride bowing before me nay I hate the place I am no Queen at heart my laughter died that I might wear my crown with regal grace the very flowers which smile on my sad face I am afraid of see they are the worst of all my fears so fair yet black accursed the language passion poppy sways and dips to show the black heart bursting into flame the crimson evil of a satyrs lips a sneering nodding finger-post of shame a thousand other flowers without a name huddle all trembling in the desk behind like hunted ghosts whose eyes are white and blind the grass is not the grass that overhead cooled my bare feet with daisies purest snows but thick pale blades like fingers of the dead thrust from forgotten graves upon their foes a horrid soil for everything that grows in this confine but mocks in wicked scorn the fairness of the land where I was born end of poem this recording is in the public domain end of some verses by Helen hey Whitney
