Cream White

Title

Cream White

Description

White, cream white; in pleat and band and fold;
The pure white of the snow touched with the sunset's gold:
With foamy flecks of lace, at bust and throat and wrist,
Like edge of pearling waves, when sandy beach they've kissed:
White, creamy white; crowned with her wavy hair.
'Bove gleaming dark eyes lit with soul so true, so rare,
That I would give the world, and all in it I see
To know her soul, looked forth through those dark eyes for me:
White is her robe, and white her thoughts; and pure
As thoughts of angels or of children are;
Pure as the snow, or e'en a maiden's dreams--
With just enough of earth to make the white a cream.
