I could live riotously
From sun to sun;
I could walk the broad, free path --
Shun the narrow one.

I could snatch with ruthless hand
All that comes my way --
Were it right or were it wrong --
It were mine to pay.

I could arm my woman's wit
With a sword of flame,
Match my skill with Satan
In a subtle game --

Yet, here I lie as white and still
As moonlight on a frosted sill.
