FRAGMENT

 
· · · · · · · · ·
 

And what of all remained to me,
When back from Eden I returned?

Dreams of princesses in satin array,
For princes that tenderly are gleaming;
For princes that dreamy litheness display,
And like to love with passion are teeming.

Dreams of princesses in satin array,
In a bower where scents of roses flow,
And they crave to wander away, ah, away,
Golden-clad on a horse to go.
