But though she always thus appears in form of youth and mood of mirth,

Unnumbered centuries are hers, the infant planets saw her birth;

The child of throbbing Life is she, Twin sister to the greedy earth.

And back behind those smiling lips, and down within those laughing eyes,

And underneath the soft caress of hand and voice and purring sighs,

The shadow of the panther lurks, the spirit of the vampire lies.
