A FOREIGN TONGUE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When lovers talk, they talk a foreign tongue

Subject(s): Love


WHEN lovers talk, they talk a foreign tongue.
Their words are not like ours,
But full of meanings like the throb of flowers
Yet in the earth, unborn. I think the snow
Feels the mysterious passage and the flow
Of inarticulate streams that surge below.
And it is easy learning for the young;
When lovers talk, they talk a foreign tongue.
