POEM OF THE DAY: A Young Girl

by John Gould Fletcher (1886 – 1950).
 
A Young Girl (1918)

Out of the rings and the bubbles,
The curls and the swirls of the water,
Out of the crystalline shower of drops shattered in play,
Her body and her thoughts arose.
She dreamed of some lover
To whom she might offer her body
Fresh and cool as a flower born in the rain.
