Opal
a poem by Amy Lowell 

 


Amy Lowell
Opal


You are ice and fire,
The touch of you burns my hands like snow.
You are cold and flame.
You are the crimson of amaryllis,
The silver of moon-touched magnolias.
When I am with you,
My heart is a frozen pond
Gleaming with agitated torches

Amy Lowell
Opal
