(To Marguerita Delphine)


"Lo and behold: a magic apparition

Floats on to the stage, into our field of vision.

Not only one worshipper but all,

Are watching Delphine, her raiment all aglitter.

First she droops like a flower, then lightly she turns and wheels

Her airy movements are gentle as a breeze.

Lovely the melodies to which she frolics,

Her golden butterfly to nimle feet is dropping.

Bewitching child, she dances to and fro

Tripping it on the light fantastic toe.

She leaps, she vanishes, says no good-bye,

We, admiring, acclaiming-await her return."
