Poem by Elinor Wylie


Love Song


Lovers eminent in love 
Ever diversities combine; 
The vocal chords of the cushat-dove, 
The snakes articulated spine.

Such elective elements 
Educate the eye and lip 
With ones refreshing innocence, 
The others claim to scholarship.

The serpents knowledge of the world 
Learn, and the doves more naive charm; 
Whether your ringlets should be curled, 
And why he likes his claret warm.
