And the poplar sheds disconsolate leaves,
Tell me again why love bewitches,
And what love gives.

The eyebrow’s curve, the curve of the cheek?
The mouth that quivers, when the hand caresses,
But cannot speak?

The secret, more than in other things:
Not only the touch of a hand can gladden
Till the blood sings.

The bells that murmur, the shadows that move,
The autumnal sunlight that fades upon ...

the golden arrow in the southeast sings
and hears on the roof the Atlantic Ocean roar.
Waves among wires, sea scudding over poles,
