The Lady's Reward

Lady, lady, never start
Conversation toward your heart;
Keep your pretty words serene;
Never murmur what you mean.
Show yourself, by word and look,
Swift and shallow as a brook.
Be as cool and quick to go
As a drop of April snow;
Be as delicate and gay
As a cherry flower in May.
Lady, lady never speak
Of the tears that burn your cheek -
She will never win him, whose
Words had shown she feared to lose.
Be you wise and never sad,
You will get your lovely lad.
Never serious be, nor true,
And your wish will come to you -
And if that makes you happy, kid,
You'll be the first it ever did.

-Dorothy Parker

Or there is this one:

The sun's gone dim, and
The moon's turned black;
For I loved him, and
He didn't love back.

B is for Blog is on hiatus. Look for me after Leopard. Maybe.

Thanks Cara and Megan for being the best friends a girl could ever hope for.

Thanks Bosley for cuddling with me last night.

And thanks, Genesis, for coming in just three days.
