How beautiful the blandishments of spring!
Arrays of passion blooming in the aisles,
Praise exploding, palpable as dust,
Pain surfeited, like water on the run,
Yearning for the salience of the sea.

Truth, however, lies in everything,
Held like paint within the glaze of tiles,
Intrinsic to both recklessness and rust,
Resident in somnolence and sun,
Determined as two lovers' love to be.
