BURNING THE LOVE LETTERS


Long smoldering passions, waked to flame--

See how these pages twist and turn,

tormented by love's fiery tongues,

and in their antique ardors burn.


Bodies of lovers, twisting, turning,

in a carnal holocaust of gold,

condemned for witchcraft, heresy,

for fires, once crimson, now grown cold.
