O my coy darling, still


You wear for me the scent


Of those long afternoons we spent,


The two of us together,


Safe in the attic from the jealous eyes


Of household spies


And the remote buffooneries of the weather;


So high,


Our sole remaining neighbor was the sky,


Which, often enough, at dusk,


Leaning its cloudy shoulders on the sill,


Used to regard us with a bored and cynical eye.





How like the terrified,


Shy figure of a bride


You stood there then, without your clothes,


Drawn up into


So classic and so strict a pose


Almost, it seemed, our little attic grew


Dark with the first charmed night of the honeymoon.


Or was it only some obscure


Shape of my mother's youth I saw in you,


There where the rude shadows of the afternoon


Crept up your ankles and you stood


Hiding your sex as best you could?--


Prim ghost the evening light shone through.
