The Green Door
By Carlyle F. McIntyre
From “Rodomontades”

HERE in the May we danced on violets
  And blew off golden bubbles. Ah, my love,
How shall I name the sorrows and regrets
  I pluck, and the black drink I press thereof?
Now you dream deeply, wise in death’s great lore;        5
  I lean above you where the crickets sing,
And fumble the dumb latch of the green door—
  You of the Maytime, lovely, wantoning.
