O blossom that hangs in the tremulous air!
    O blossom with lips of snow!
Come down, come down, for my love to wear!
    You will
        You will die on her head in a crown,
        You will die in a fold of her gown,
    To her little light heart you will go!
O blossom that hangs in the tremulous air!
    O blossom with lips of snow!

    Oscar Wilde
