Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Edna St. Vincent Millay: Humoresque

Heaven bless the babe,” they said. 
“What queer books she must have read!” 
(Love, by whom I was beguiled, 
Grant I may not bear a child!)

“Little does she guess today 
What the world may be,” they say. 
(Snow, drift deep and cover 
Till the spring my murdered lover!)
