THREE WOMEN: SYLVIA, by            
First Line: In the twilight was her birth
Last Line: Not quite human from the first.
Subject(s): Women


IN the twilight was her birth
Of a passion and a prayer;
Half of heaven, half of earth,
Kin to wildlings of the air.
Finely tuned to joy and pain,
At a breath her mind will stir;
Love may hurt his hands in vain
At the doorless heart of her.
Like an opal, fair with flaws,
Rarely blessed, darkly cursed,
She was made in scorn of laws,
Not quite human from the first.
