Where We Differ

Written by: William Henry Davies | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 To think my thoughts are hers, 
Not one of hers is mine; 
She laughs -- while I must sigh; 
She sighs -- while I must whine.

She eats -- while I must fast; 
She reads -- while I am blind; 
She sleeps -- while I must wake; 
Free -- I no freedom find.

To think the world for me 
Contains but her alone, 
And that her eyes prefer 
Some ribbon, scarf, or stone.
