    Theocritus--A Villanelle

    by Oscar Wilde

    O singer of Persephone!
    In the dim meadows desolate
    Dost thou remember Sicily?

    Still through the ivy flits the bee
    Where Amaryllis lies in state;
    O Singer of Persephone!

    Simaetha calls on Hecate
    And hears the wild dogs at the gate;
    Dost thou remember Sicily?

    Still by the light and laughing sea
    Poor Polypheme bemoans his fate;
    O Singer of Persephone!

    And still in boyish rivalry
    Young Daphnis challenges his mate;
    Dost thou remember Sicily?

    Slim Lacon keeps a goat for thee,
    For thee the jocund shepherds wait;
    O Singer of Persephone!
    Dost thou remember Sicily?
