OPPORTUNITY, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Behold a hag whom life denies a kiss
Last Line: To know, too late, the fairy in disguise.

BEHOLD a hag whom Life denies a kiss
As he rides questward in knight-errantwise;
Only when he hath passed her is it his
To know, too late, the Fairy in disguise.
