Poem by Elinor Wylie
Lovers eminent in love Ever diversities combine; The vocal chords of the cushat-dove, The snake’s articulated spine. Such elective elements Educate the eye and lip With one’s refreshing innocence, The other’s claim to scholarship. The serpent’s knowledge of the world Learn, and the dove’s more na”ive charm; Whether your ringlets should be curled, And why he likes his claret warm.
