GYPSY HEART, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: I'd love to be a gypsy
Last Line: Gay slippers with red heels!
Subject(s): Gypsies; Hearts; Love; Gipsies
I'D love to be a gypsy
With brown feet bare,
And dance like flame
Through night-black woods
With starshine in my hair.
But a little house needs tending:
Fires must be kept,
White beds each morning
Must be made,
And porches newly swept.
And so I hush my wayward heart,
And cook and serve the meals,
But neighbors wonder
Why I wear
Gay slippers with red heels!
