Poem by Elinor Wylie


Curious Circumstance


The sailormans child 
And the girl of the witch-- 
They cant be defiled 
By touching pitch.

The sailormans son 
Had a ship for a nursery; 
The other one 
Was baptised by sorcery.

Although hes shipped 
To the Persian Gulf, her 
Bodys been dipped 
In burning sulphur.
