Collected Poems



When Love and Life were children
Life said, "Let's go and play,"
and led his little sweetheart
to faery fields away.

He told her all his secrets—
unwisely, it befell,
for now he's old and foolish.
and doesn't see too well,

and Love's a cunning lady,
a wrinkled courtesan,
who knows more tricks and secrets
than any daft old man.
