I always saw, I always said
If I were grown and free,
As fine as you could see,
To wear out walking, sleek and slow,
Upon a Summer day,
And there'd be one to see me so
And flip the world away.
And he would be a gallant one,
With stars behind his eyes,
And hair like metal in the sun,
And lips too warm for lies.
I always saw us, gay and good,
High honored in the town.
Now I am grown to womanhood....
I have the silly gown.
I love classic poems . It's been a great while since I last found an epic poem book from English literature . But I am sure I am gonna pick some soon . My literature classes haven't started so it's a sure thing to be away from those books .
A few of my favourite poets are Robert Frost , Henry Long Fellow , Elsa Kazi & more .
This poem is by Dorothy Parker , she was an awesome poet too . It caught my eye because I was searching a poem for mother's day & it just came up . It felt effective to read it . It' simply about a woman & a long , formal dress .
I am sure I would pick a book related to her .
