To Helen About Her Hair/

Robinson Jeffers

Your hair is long and wonderful;

It is dark, with golden

Lights in the length of it.

Long, lovely, liquid, glorious

Is your hair, and lustrous,

Scented with summertime.

Beware when you are combing it,

In the nights and mornings,

Shaking its splendor out.

I bid you comb it carefully,

For my soul is caught there,

Wound in the web of it.
