eBaumTards. Come In and Delight in my Fruits!

        They trod and hustled her, 
        Elbowed and jostled her, 
        Clawed with their nails, 
        Barking, mewing, hissing, mocking, 
        Tore her gown and soiled her stocking, 
        Twitched her hair out by the roots, 
        Stamped upon her tender feet, 
        Held her hands and squeezed their fruits 
        Against her mouth to make her eat.

        Hug me, kiss me, suck my juices 
        Squeezed from goblin fruits for you, 
        Goblin pulp and goblin dew. 
        Eat me, drink me, love me; 
        Laura, make much of me: 
        For your sake I have braved the glen 
        And had to do with goblin merchant men

        She clung about her sister, 
        Kissed and kissed and kissed her: 
        Tears once again 
        Refreshed her shrunken eyes, 
        Dropping like rain 
        After long sultry drouth; 
        Shaking with aguish fear, and pain, 
        She kissed and kissed her with a hungry mouth.

        Golden head by golden head, 
        Like two pigeons in one nest, 
        Folded in each other's wings, 
        They lay down in their curtained bed: 
        Like two blossoms on one stem, 
        Like two flakes of new-fall'n snow, 
        Like two wands of ivory 

        My heart is like a singing bird 
        Whose nest is in a watered shoot; 
        My heart is like an apple tree 
        Whose boughs are bent with thickset fruit; 
        My heart is like a rainbow shell 
        That paddles in a halcyon sea; 
        My heart is gladder than all these 
        Because my love is come to me
