There’s such an I love you!

There’s such an I love you!
no fainting pearl so delicate,
Bobby, as if a rumor were scented,
never there, yet, always here.

He opens like a flower and like a
flower never looks away from me,
it is the Kiss of the Snow Maiden.
the Smile of the famous Golden Forest.

– Frank O’Hara
