What does "crisp precision" mean?

She whispers with a crisp precision,
scented words of love. The beautiful
lily in the lake beside me sheds a tear
of dew, as gently, mayflies take
their flight to grant some privacy.

    It’s not a set phrase. You need to consider the two words separately. Precision has its normal meaning of exactness.

    Crisp: (of a way of speaking) briskly decisive and matter-of-fact, without hesitation or unnecessary detail.
