Liquid as a lime tree blossom . . . .

A White Blossom

by D. H. Lawrence

A tiny moon as white and small as a single jasmine flower

Leans all alone above my window, on night’s wintry bower,

Liquid as lime-tree blossom, soft as brilliant water or rain

She shines, the one white love of my youth, which all sin cannot stain.
