"loveliness:..."   (Orchard)

Notice that the speaker contradicts her prayer to “spare us from loveliness” with the colon that follows this plea. She goes on to describe in vibrant detail the “loveliness” that she wants this god to deny her. In her description of colors, taste, and types, the speaker indulges in the very thing she claims to avoid.
