THE CHANGED WOMAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The light flower leaves its little core
Last Line: That never thought to be forgiven.
Alternate Author Name(s): Holden, Raymond, Mrs.
Subject(s): Change


The light flower leaves its little core
Begun upon the ready bough.
Again she bears what she once bore,
And what she knew, she must know now.

The cracked glass fuses at a touch,
The wound mends over, and is set
In the whole flesh and is not much
To quite remember or forget.

Rocket and tree, and dome and bubble
Again behind her freshened eyes
Are treacherous. She need not trouble,
Her lids will know them when she dies.

And while she lives, the unwise, heady
Dream, ever denied and driven
Will one day find her bosom ready,
That never thought to be forgiven.
