A Bit of Poetry

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.
