I kissed the lips of beauty then that night
And ran my fingers through her lusty hair,
I held her body in my arms so tight
And bared her bosom, made my cheek lie there,
So, drunk with passion I did lay in bliss
And smothered thusly, floated on a cloud,
I shuddered sweetly, leaned into the abyss
And satyrs smiled while angels screamed aloud;
And God did frown and Satan danced about,
The sun turned black, the moon a brilliant blue,
The stars fell from the sky in endless count
And scorched the earth into a crimson hue;
But when the morning came my dear sweet friend,
God did forgive, and Satan did amend.
