Sleep Peacefully

 You said the word that enamors
My hearing.
You already forgot.
Sleep peacefully.
Your face should Be serene and beautiful at all hours.
When the seductive mouth enchants It should be fresh, your speech pleasant; For your office as lover it's not good That many tears come from your face.
More glorious destinies reclaim you That were brought, between the black wells Of the dark circles beneath your eyes, the seer in pain.
The bottom, summit of the beautiful victims! The foolish spade of some barbarous king Did more harm to the world and your statue.
