"The Garden of Earthly Delights" as written by Joseph Byrd and Dorothy Moskowitz....
poisonous gardens, lethal and sweet
venomous blossoms
choleric fruit, deadly to eat
violet nightshades, innocent bloom
omnivourous orchids
cautiously wait, hungrily loom
you will find them in her eyes,
in her eyes, in her eyes

petrified willows, twisted and brown
carrion swallows
wait in the wet darkening room
withering shadows, quietly grow
potently breeding into a spectacular glow
you will find them in her eyes
in her eyes, in her eyes

lemonous petals, dissident play
tasting of ergot
dancing by night, dying by day
blackening mushrooms drink in the rain
sinister nightblooms
wilt with the dawn's welcoming pain
you will find them in her eyes
in her eyes, in her eyes
