Robert Browning Quotes: That Moment She Was Mine Mine Fair

That Moment She Was Mine, Mine, Fair,
Perfectly Pure And Good: I Found
A Thing To Do, And All Her Hair
In One Long Yellow String I Wound
Three Times Her Little Throat Around,
And Strangled Her. No Pain Felt She;
I Am Quite Sure She Felt No Pain.
As A Shut Bud That Holds A Bee,
I Warily Oped Her Lids: Again
Laughed The Blue Eyes Without A Stain.
And I Untightened The Next Tress
About Her Neck; Her Cheek Once More
Blushed Bright Beneath My Burning Kiss ...
