Poor Little Heart!

192

Poor little Heart!
Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!

Proud little Heart!
Did they forsake thee?
Be debonnaire! Be debonnaire!

Frail little Heart!
I would not break thee—
Could'st credit me? Could'st credit me?

Gay little Heart—
Like Morning Glory!
Wind and Sun—wilt thee array!

Very dignified lady of her time. Writing with a constant of intelligence and insightful understanding. Each word is almost brick like in her poetry, showing a keen, intense, dynamic, force in her writings.
