And great boughs drop tranquillity;

A parrot sways upon a tree,

Raging at his own image in the enamelled sea.

 And wander ever with woven hands,

 Murmauring softly lip to lip,

 Along the grass, along the sands,

A meteor of the burning heart,

One with the tide that gleams, the wings that gleam and dart,


The heavy boughs, the burnished dove

When eve has hushed the feathered ways,

With vapoury footsole by the water’s drowsy blaze.
