      o sweet spontaneous
      earth how often have
      the
      doting

      fingers of
      prurient philosophers pinched
      and
      poked

      thee
      , has the naughty thumb
      of science prodded
      thy

      beauty . how
      often have religions taken
      thee upon their scraggy knees
      squeezing and

      buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
      gods
      (but
      true

      to the incomparable
      couch of death thy
      rhythmic
      lover

      thou answerest


      them only with

      spring)
