I am not a cold woman, Henry,
But I do not feel for you,
What I feel for the elephants and the miasmas
And the general view.
Oh, no no no, it was too cold always
(Still the dead one lay moaning)
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning.
My Muse sits forlorn She wishes she had not been born She sits in the cold No word she says is ever told.
Quote of the day
As man now is, God once was: As God now is, man may be.
