IN THE THIRTIES
Because my subtle body glows with
flame ns kenc as youth,
Because I smooth men's vanity while
giving them some truth,
The young men seek my kisses and
my words, and woo me well-*
But howr those young men bore me.
no mortal tongue can tell.
Old loves have made me passionate,
old sorrows made me kind;
I am tolerant and subtle, and wise
of heart and mind,
And years of setvtng beauty have
touched me with their grace—
And the young men entertain me
with the latest commonplace!
I wish you girls would come and take
your boys away with you.
Or even my long practiced tack may
suddenly break through,
And some Inane young egoist a*
strutting at my door
May hear plain truths about himself
he never heard before.
