And in the watery beams of the summer moon, Naked, dreaming, her gilded pallor stained By the heavy flood of her long blue hair, In a dark grove of mosses stuck with stars, The Dryad stares at silent, empty skies ...
Beelzebub jerks ropes about the necks Of small black dolls who squirm against the sky; With slaps, with whacks and cuffs and kicks He makes them dance an antique roundelay! Excited jumping jacks, they join thin arms; Black organ lofts, their fretwork breasts That once beat fast at beauteous damsels' charms Now clack together in a perverse embrace. Hurrah the jolly dancers, whose guts are gone! About the narrow planks they jerk and prance! Beelzebub roars the rasping fiddles' song! Hop! They cannot tell the battle from the dance!

That was the shadowy past that fell, That screamed and fell the day we took the tower! We felt within our hearts something like love. We embraced our sons, and one another, that day. And just like your horses, flaring our nostrils, We walked around,. strong and proud, and felt good right here! We walked in sunshine, heads held high, like this, Across Paris!
