Luini in porcelain!
The grand piano
Utters a profane
Protest with her clear soprano.
 
The sleek head emerges
From the gold-yellow frock
As Anadyomene in the opening
Pages of Reinach.
 
Honey-red, closing the face-oval,
A basket-work of braids which seem as if they were
Spun in King Minos’ hall
From metal, or intractable amber;
 
The face-oval beneath the glaze,
Bright in its suave bounding-line, as,
Beneath half-watt rays,
The eyes turn topaz.
