You hate me and I hate youYou hate me and I hate youAnd we are so polite, we two!And we are so polite, we two!But whenever I see you, I burst apartBut whenever I see you, I burst apartAnd scatter the sky with my blazing heart.And scatter the sky with my blazing heart.It spits and sparkles in the stars and balls,It spits and sparkles in the stars and balls,Buds into roses – and flares, and falls.Buds into roses – and flares, and falls.Scarlet buttons, and pale green disks,Scarlet buttons, and pale green disks,Silver spirals and asterisks,Silver spirals and asterisks,Shoot and tremble in a mistShoot and tremble in a mistPeppered with mauve and amethyst.Peppered with mauve and amethyst.I shine in the windows and light up the trees,I shine in the windows and light up the trees,And all because I hate you, if you please.And all because I hate you, if you please.And when you meet me, you rend asunder And when you meet me, you rend asunder And go up in a flaming wonder And go up in a flaming wonder Of saffron cubes, and crimson moons,Of saffron cubes, and crimson moons,And wheels all amaranths and maroons.And wheels all amaranths and maroons.Golden lozenges and spadesGolden lozenges and spadesArrows of malachite's and jades,Arrows of malachite's and jades,Patens of copper, azure sheaves.Patens of copper, azure sheaves.As you mount, you flash in the glossy leaves.As you mount, you flash in the glossy leaves.Such fireworks as we make, we two!Such fireworks as we make, we two!Because you hate me and I hate you.Because you hate me and I hate you.
