Oscar Wilde

Here you will find the Poem In The Gold Room of poet Oscar Wilde

In The Gold Room

HER ivory hands on the ivory keys
 Strayed in a fitful fantasy,
 Like the silver gleam when the poplar trees
 Rustle their pale leaves listlessly,
 Or the drifting foam of a restless sea
 When the waves show their teeth in the flying breeze.

 Her gold hair fell on the wall of gold
 Like the delicate gossamer tangles spun
 On the burnished disk of the marigold,
 Or the sun-flower turning to meet the sun
 When the gloom of the jealous night is done,
 And the spear of the lily is aureoled.

 And her sweet red lips on these lips of mine
 Burned like the ruby fire set
 In the swinging lamp of a crimson shrine,
 Or the bleeding wounds of the pomegranate,
 Or the heart of the lotus drenched and wet
 With the spilt-out blood of the rose-red wine.
