The Untamed
By Carlyle F. McIntyre
 
From “Rodomontades”

OUT of my dream I wrought you; and your mouth
  Was scarlet, the young body straight and fine,
Your soft eyes like full midnight of the south,
  And every curve and flexure wholly mine.
 
But at my kiss you stirred; the deeps awoke        5
  And pushed me strongly backward. Oh, the new,
The virginal, untamed one, whom no yoke
  Could bind, nor make you to yourself untrue!
