Crane, H. (n.d.). Carmen de Boheme. Retrieved from


Excerpt: SINUOUSLY winding through the room // On smokey tongues of sweetened cigarettes, - // Plaintive yet proud the cello tones resume // The andante of smooth hopes and lost regrets. // Bright peacocks drink from flame-pots by the wall, // Just as absinthe-sipping women shiver through // With shimmering blue from the bowl in Circe's hall. // Their brown eyes blacken, and the blue drop hue. // The andante quivers with crescendo's start, // And dies on fire's birth in each man's heart. // The tapestry betrays a finger through // The slit, soft-pulling; - - - and music follows cue. // There is a sweep, - a shattering, - a choir // Disquieting of barbarous fantasy. // The pulse is in the ears, the heart is higher, // And stretches up through mortal eyes to see. // Carmen! Akimbo arms and smouldering eyes; - // Carmen! Bestirring hope and lipping eyes; - // Carmen whirls, and music swirls and dips. // Carmen!, comes awed from wine-hot lips. // Finale leaves in silence to replume // Bent wings, and Carmen with her flaunts through the gloom // Of whispering tapestry, brown with old fringe: - // The winers leave too, and the small lamps twinge. // Morning: and through the foggy city gate // A gypsy wagon wiggles, striving straight. // And some dream still of Carmen's mystic face, - // Yellow, pallid, like ancient lace. // Hart Crane //
