Curious Circumstance

Written by: Elinor Wylie | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 The sailorman's child 
And the girl of the witch-- 
They can't be defiled 
By touching pitch.
The sailorman's son Had a ship for a nursery; The other one Was baptised by sorcery.
Although he's shipped To the Persian Gulf, her Body's been dipped In burning sulphur.
