Collected Poems

A Naked Girl Swimming

A Naked Girl Swimming

Air, earth and water meet at the sea's edge:
see, Dian cold thrusts in with Iustless hand
her watery wedge
where, whirled through skies and walled with rock, cling wind and land.

One element was lacking till you came:
you, lovely wife of Sol, life-giving fire,
you are the flame
that welds the clashing worlds of matter and desire.
