Even a Mole-Rat Relishes the Sweetness

Maria zart von edler Art.
|Even a mole-rat relishes the
Inside its mole-skinned eyes. And a roach,
Groping through a stove-pipe's greasy dust,
Has spots on its soul specialized for joy.
There are salt songs for anemones, and lust
Yet unsavored for a starfish to broach.
Sorrowing butterflies grieve
for life's fleetness;
