The dutch white blizzards, like desert sand dust storms raging against the oasis, magnify her desire for the opium of the awakening time.

She dances, swathed in a gauzy ecru and emerald gown, gesturing to the gorgeous banks of English lavender, inviting them burst forth, so she may braid their springs into her ebony hair.
What care, she now, that wintering holds sway; she sleeps, an English violet, in another land.
