English term or phrase: Your sonnet is quite lovely
January 1893, Babbacombe Cliff

My Own Boy,

Your sonnet is quite lovely, and it
is a marvel that those red-roseleaf
lips of yours should be made no
less for the madness of music and
song than for the madness of
kissing. Your slim gilt soul walks
between passion and poetry. I
know Hyacinthus, whom Apollo
loved so madly, was you in Greek

Why are you alone in London,
and when do you go to Salisbury?
Do go there to cool your hands in
the grey twilight of Gothic things,
and come here whenever you
like. It is a lovely place and lacks
only you; but go to Salisbury first.

Always, with undying love,
Yours, OSCAR.
