Scaramouche and Pulcinella
a bad drawing combined
gesture dark in moonlight
all the while the excellent
doctor slowly culls
simples in the brownish grass
as his daughter piquant-faced
down the arbor furtively
seminude slips in search
of her handsome Spanish pirate
whose woe a drowsy nightingale
shouts at the top of its voice
