From Notes to Poems 3

Who'll wear this geisha's metal wig and who made this swimmer, all right angles, curve so sumptuously, carve this solid stone so sensuously?

Getting a bit carried away there - so I'll pause and think about the feeling I had that the materials in some instances were so smooth that they looked as if they would be soft to the touch. 

Who'll wear this geisha's metal wig, and who
made this swimmer, all right angles, curve so
lithely/sumptuously/lissomly? Carve this solid stone
So sensuously it seems it was not made but grew?

This has the feel of a four-line set which might actually be lines 5 to 8. Back to the lily lamps and the lake to see if we can get the first four lines sorted out.
