and palm trees sway gently in the wind.
A gentle breeze sets out
to gently caress the guests. (Christa Kluge)

The barricade of solitude to be moved away,

Nights are filled with fragrance of tuberose
And moon has come down to earth
To walk besides enlightening my life (Ashok Kumar Mishra)

The tuberose and datura ever burning
Their incense to the dusky face of night.

On a pale face — a question.
An elegant white coffin

Dreams of heated and stuffy and humid greenhouses.

The outlines of faded, lovers’ faces glide a little. (Konstantin Balmont)

And in them a burning stream of your betrayals,
I drink the bitterness of evenings, nights and crowded gatherings,
I drink raw bitterness of a sobbing stanza… (Boris Pasternak)

you wore in curls around your ebony hair,
gliding with the lattice of its pleats
to girdle your swan neck supple,
the image still unfaded, I treasure. (Subimal Sinha-Roy)

Of yonder tuberose: hide thee there —

Pure-born from these most rich and yet most white
Virginities! (Sidney Lanier)

To welcome gentle moonbeams touch again. (Sam Kauffman)
