Love Song

My own dear love, he is strong and bold
And he cares not what comes after.
His words ring sweet as a chime of gold,
And his eyes are lit with laughter.
He is jubilant as a flag unfurled—
Oh, a girl, she’d not forget him.
My own dear love, he is all my world,—
And I wish I’d never met him.
My love, he’s mad, and my love, he’s fleet,
And a wild young wood-thing bore him!
The ways are fair to his roaming feet,
And the skies are sunlit for him.
As sharply sweet to my heart he seems
As the fragrance of acacia.
My own dear love, he is all my dreams,—
And I wish he were in Asia.
My love runs by like a day in June,
And he makes no friends of sorrows.
He’ll tread his galloping rigadoon
In the pathway of the morrows.
He’ll live his days where the sunbeams start,
Nor could storm or wind uproot him.
My own dear love, he is all my heart,—
And I wish somebody’d shoot him.

She’s just too clever. Not many men or women appreciate her, at least not enough.

I guess many feared her. But she was too clever to get a normal sentimental life, as it seems. Men probably ran away as soon as possible.

"My life and my arms are now and hereafter consecrated to the services of the Society for the Abolition of Charm. It would be advisable, perhaps, for the Society to make a drive for the new members […] yet there is little reason to fear that the Society will pine and die for want of new blood" (c) DP

Зачем же путать ум и желчность? Любим собак, ненавидим людей - обычная история.

But she wrote a series of Hymns of Hate, explaining that she hates so to say everybody (except her dog), and why. Such a person cannot be completely bad.

Конечно, она очень милая.
