Jericho Street, and Selected Poems : 1908-1921 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Jericho Street, and Selected Poems: 1908-1921 Hen evening comes she Sits and sews, And what she dreams, or thinks, none knows. Once she was young, once she was wooed, But the end is shabby spinsterhood None probes what wound within her burns. Her mending done, she snips her ferns, Then waters them, and wipes their fronds, And mutters Of pawned diamonds. Her wigged head has begun to nod And She bears malice unto God.
