Cleopatra Comments

Rating: 2.9
HER mouth is fragrant as a vine,
A vine with birds in all its boughs;
Serpent and scarab for a sign
Between the beauty of her brows


Stephen Wilson 07 September 2012
This text is not from the original publication in The Cornhill Magazine for September 1866, but has been taken from Goss and Wise's posthumous Bonchurch edition of the poet. This contains two false readings and does not include Swinburne's epigraph to the poem.
