JEAN MARIE BOWCOTT
Full figure then facew of The Queen of Sheba

Sang Solomon to Sheba,

And kissed her dusky face,

"All day long from mid-day

We have talked in the one place,

All day long from shadowless noon

We have gone round and round

In the narrow theme of love

Like an old horse in a pound."

To Solomon sang Sheba,

Plated on his knees,

"If you had broached a matter

That might the learned please,

You had before the sun had thrown

Our shadows on the ground

Discovered that my thoughts, not it,

Are but a narrow pound."

Said Solomon to Sheba,

And kissed her Arab eyes...
