Amy Lowell - Anticipation lyrics
I have been temperate always,
But I am like to be very drunk
With your coming.
There have been times
I feared to walk down the street
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/amy-lowell/sword-blades-and-poppy-seed/anticipation.html]
Lest I should reel with the wine of you,
And jerk against my neighbours
As they go by.
I am parched now, and my tongue is horrible in my mouth,
But my brain is noisy
With the clash and gurgle of filling wine-cups.
