  SAINTE MARGERIE  

Slim feet than lilies tenderer,--
                Margerie!
That scarce upbore the body of her,
Naked upon the stones they were;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

White as a shroud the silken gown,--
                Margerie!
That flowed from shoulder to ankle down,
With clear blue shadows along it thrown;
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

On back and bosom withouten braid,--
                Margerie!
In crispËd glory of darkling red,
Round creamy temples her hair was shed;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

Eyes, like a dim sea, viewed from far,--
                Margerie!
Lips that no earthly love shall mar,
More sweet that lips of mortals are;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

The chamber walls are cracked and bare;--
                Margerie!
Without the gossips stood astare
At men her bed away that bare;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

Five pennies lay her hand within,--
                Margerie!
So she her fair soul's weal might win,
Little she reck'd of dule or teen;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

Dank straw from dunghill gathered,--
                Margerie!
Where fragrant swine have made their bed,
Thereon her body shall be laid;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

Three pennies to the poor in dole,--
                Margerie!
One to the clerk her knell shall toll,
And one to masses for her soul;--
                C'est Sainte Margerie!

                                             Unknown.
