Scented Leaves From A Chinese Jar :The Mermaid

THE SAILOR boy who leant over the side of the Junk of Many Pearls,
and combed the green tresses of the sea with his ivory fingers,

The Gold Fish

Like a breath from hoarded musk,
Like the golden fins that move
Where the tank's green shadows part-

The Pear-Tree

This shade-bestowing pear-tree, thou
Hurt not, nor lay its leafage low;
Beneath it slept the Duke of Shaou.
