Fair fantasy, copper’d swirl of locks
Bronze satin dress fastened with
Ivory floral mysteries…her loveliness
Lures, but looks a warning: are you
Certain you really want what I hold?
Have you fearlessness to accept this
Bright sterling skeleton key?
You don’t know what it opens…
If door, just where it leads.
Could be Life’s singular bonheur…or
Agony’s hell-trap, relentless Despair.
