AT TWO-AND-TWENTY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Marian, may, and maud
Last Line: What care I?
Subject(s): Aging; Love - Unrequited

MARIAN, May, and Maud
Have not passed me by --
Arched foot, and rosy mouth,
And bronze-brown eye!

When my hair is gray,
Then I shall be wise;
Then, thank Heaven! I shall not care
For bronze-brown eyes.

Then let Maud and May
And Marian pass me by:
So they do not scorn me now,
What care I?
