A Fine Young Woman

Written by: elizabeth landon-lane

In the manner of lovers
I embrace the dream.
In the nature of solitude
I cherish your desire.

It is an act without intention,
The cause remote;
And I am in the web of it
With all the others.

A little mad
With all this exotic experience...

Such a fine young woman,
Bemused and unresisting...
And a little mad,
Like the rest of us.
