    Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive,
    Half wishing they were dead to save the shame.
    The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow;
    They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats,
    And flare up bodily, wings and all.

To start into her face, a thousand innocent shames
In angel whiteness beat away those blushes,
And in her eye there hath appeared a fire
To burn the errors that these princes hold
Against her maiden truth.

Modest as morning when she coldly eyes
The youthful Phoebus,
Which is that god in office, guiding men?

Such a blush
In the midst of brown was born,
Like red poppies grown with corn.
