Cythaera and the Worm
By Marjorie Allen Seiffert
 
SILENCE,
Spun from what you never said,
Is but a winding-sheet
In which a worm lies dead:
 
The worm of love,        5
A-spinning its cocoon
Of silken cloth,
Of delicate silence, whence so soon
It should emerge, a lunar moth.
 
O worm,        10
So royally interred,
Why should I dream pale wings about my head?
