T. R. Smith, comp.  Poetica Erotica: Rare and Curious Amatory Verse.  1921–22.
By Donald Evans (1884–1921)
(From Discords, 1911)

ONE dusk thy image for all time I caught,—
  Thou stoodst before me whitely garmentless,
Thine eyes were flame and thy arms opened wide,
While thy red mouth made sound deliriously.
Thy tender flesh I gathered to my side        5
  Until thy heart against my heart did press,
And in thy nubile body’s mystery
  I found the speechless perfect joy I sought!
