My candle burns at both ends It will not last the night But oh my foes and ah my friends It gives a lovely light. This keeps running through my head. My college English Professor often quoted this poem as her favorite.

Truly an awesome poet. I majored in poetry, and I can say for myself that this is a great poet.

Maine claims her, and America labeled her a poet! Would have loved to met her, in her time! One of my favorite and most cherished!

And I to lie with you, Melissa. On a bright sunshiny morning in the High Sierras or in an evening during the magic of an alpenglow..

One of the poems iin which Millay is shattered and humiliated not by the loss of love but by the travesty of justice during the Sacco-Vanzetti trumped up trial. Both were executed - more for being Italian immigrants and anarchists..than for anything based on evidence. Compare to the infamous Dreyfuss Affair in France. The pernicious weeds have won, Millay's character thinks.

I guess my previous information was incorrect. This PH biography seems to imply she died from smoking; my understanding was that she fell down a flight of steps at her home and broke her neck.

This poem created a relaxing feel for me. I would give anything to be able to just lay under the sun on a hill.
