This book is threadbare.
Man Does, Woman Is
Studiously by lamplight I appraised
The palm of your hand, its heart-line
Identical with its head-line;
And you appraised the approving frown.
I spread my cards face-upwards on the table,
Not challenging you for yours.
Man does; but woman is –
Can a gamester argue with his luck?
- Robert Graves
Maybe it’s just me . That’s beautiful. Just beautiful.
