Ellis Parker Butler (Эллис Паркер Батлер)


An Exception


In all romances, old and new,
   And in all lover's rhymes
I find one rule that has held true
   Since prehistoric times.

The lover must, if he indeed
   Be hit by Cupid's dart,
Grow pale, sigh much, neglect his food,
   And wholly lose his heart.

Now fain would I abide this rule
   But I, forsooth, grow red
And hot, and stammer like a fool,
   And only lose my head.



Ellis Parker Butler's other poems:
  1. The Sheep
  2. When Ida Puts Her Armor On
  3. Reasonable Interest
  4. The Charge of the Second Iowa Cavalry
  5. Ridden Down
