Amy Lowell - A Gift lyrics
See! I give myself to you, Beloved!
My words are little jars
For you to take and put upon a shelf.
Their shapes are quaint and beautiful,
And they have many pleasant colours and lustres
To recommend them.
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/amy-lowell/sword-blades-and-poppy-seed/a-gift.html]
Also the scent from them fills the room
With sweetness of flowers and crushed gra**es.
When I shall have given you the last one,
You will have the whole of me,
But I shall be dead.
