TO A WOMAN, by            
First Line: Sometimes I think that you were born mature
Last Line: But only be the happiest of fools.
Subject(s): Maturity; Women


Sometimes I think that you were born mature;
That every experience must find
In you its mirror and its mate, designed
For fertile union: you are firm, secure
Within your acre. The ephemeral lure
Of adolescence never led you blind,
Or stuffed its moon lit lyrics in your mind:
And you have grown with growth that will endure.
But I came from the wind's womb and I go,
Much like my mother, unsubstantially.
I furbish stars or brush the muddy pools
Or hold light daliance with the apple tree.
It is ordained that I shall never grow,
But only be the happiest of fools.
