and all I saw her thick locks, in like a mass
of honey drip ripple dripping from the pin,
Each separate hair is was like the thin
Gold thread within a Venice glass.
She loosed her pale blue/rose-pink/lemon satin stays
She took her a carven amber/ boxwood/ivory comb,
Her hair fell down like yellow foam.
or like a sunbeam tangled rays
foam x came crawling/tumbling down like yellow foam
