When Sue Wears Red

When Susanna Jones wears red Her face is like an ancient cameo Turned brown with the ages. Come with a blast of trumpets, Jesus! When Susanna Jones wears red A queen from some time-dead Egyptian night Walks once again. Blow trumpets, Jesus! And the beauty of Susanna Jones in red Burns in my heart a love-fire sharp like pain Sweet silver trumpets, Jesus!
