Enough of this flimsy doggerel, I say! Stand aside and let a real poet speak!

Oh! How like a waterfall, this thundering bliss                
Ascending the starry steps of the trembling void
Puissant with its thousand stars and memories
And 'twas only yesterday that we tippled tea
Upon the esplanade under the Paris sky
What lofty pinnacle of storm hast thou summoned me to, my love?
And doth the plumy tendrils of thy nascent desire
Stretch forth to succour or to drown me?
So far from my first love, my boyhood Scottish moors!
