Sarojini Naidu - Alabaster lyrics
Like this alabaster box whose art
Is frail as a ca**ia-flower, is my heart,
Carven with delicate dreams and wrought
With many a subtle and exquisite thought.
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/sarojini-naidu/-/alabaster.html]
Therein I treasure the spice and scent
Of rich and pa**ionate memories blent
Like odours of cinnamon, sandal and clove,
Of song and sorrow and life and love.
