Marjorie Allen Seiffert
“Lust is the oldest lion of them all ...”
“Yesterday's beauty and joy lie deep / In sorrow's heart, asleep.”
“The I that does not love you / I have kept hidden away / In the dark. / (I never dreamed / There was a You / That does not love me!) / Tonight they met.”
“... when I search your soul until / I see too deeply and divine / That you can never love me — Still / I hold you fast for you are mine!”
“My cowardice / Covers me safely / From everything ...”
“I, John Shepherd, vagrant, / Petition the park commissioners / For wider benches.”
“They who dance / Find infinite golden floors / Beneath their feet.”
Marjorie Allen Seiffert, U.S. poet
(1885 - 1970)
