THE SECRET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When prudence wears her mask, ah me!
Last Line: Takes off her mask.
Subject(s): Prudence; Caution

When Prudence wears her mask, ah me!
To penetrate the mystery
Of her veiled eyes were verily
A hopeless task.

A secret that betrays no clue
Is there. But that is nothing to
The secret of her eyes, when Prue
Takes off her mask.
