Whose pitchy mantle over-veil'd the earth.

And cause them long for you know what,
If they but taste of Chocolate.

I Wish I Was What I Have Been


I wish I was what I have been
And what I was could be
As when I roved in shadows green
And loved my willow tree.

Her thoughts are like the lotus
Abloom by sacred streams
Beneath the temple arches
Where Quiet sits and dreams.
