Citron Citroen of bumblebee'd coat,
Melted at last from winter's white choke,
Buzzes toward summer whose mosquitos and gnats,
Invite citroenella, thwick, thwick, thwick, thwack.

Brutal as a Bumblebee

Camille Paglia on Emily:
The brutality of this belle of Amherst would stop a truck.
-- in Sexual Personae , "Amherst's Madame de Sade", p 623-673.

Just as the beautiful brutality of Canadian snow stops a citron Citroen:

On ice till springtime.
