I rest content; I kiss your eyes,
  I kiss your hair in my delight:
    I kiss my hand and say "Good-night."
      - Songs of the Sun-Lands--Islands of the Amazons
         (pt. V, introd. st.) [Kisses]

The gold-barr'd butterflies to and from
  And over the waterside wander'd and wove
    As heedless and idle as clouds that rove
      And drift by the peaks of perpetual snow.
      - Songs of the Sun-Lands--Isles of the Amazons
         (pt. III, st. 41) [Butterflies]

The east is blossoming! Yea, a rose,
  Vast as the heavens, soft as a kiss,
    Sweet as the presence of woman is,
      Rises and reaches, and widens and grows
        Large and luminous up from the sea,
          And out of the sea, as a blossoming tree,
            Richer and richer, so higher and higher,
              Deeper and deeper it takes its hue;
                Brighter and brighter it reaches through
                  The space of heaven and the place of stars,
                    Till all is as rich as a rose can be,
                      And my rose-leaves fall into billows of fire.
      - Sunrise in Venice [Sunrise]

The bravest battle that ever was fought;
  Shall I tell you where and when?
    On the maps of the world you will find it not;
      It was fought by the mothers of men.
      - The Bravest Battle--Mothers of Men
        [Motherhood]
