Kill your Balm — and its Odors bless you

Kill your Balm — and its Odors bless you —
Bare your Jessamine — to the storm —
And she will fling her maddest perfume —
Haply — your Summer night to Charm —

Stab the Bird — that built in your bosom —
Oh, could you catch her last Refrain —
Bubble! “forgive” — “Some better” — Bubble!
“Carol for Him — when I am gone”!
