The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - Lamenting ladies
M A Heathcote
A lady laments a voyage of pleasure
And cornucopia, English, weather.
A lady laments a man’s time for leisure
But never the daffodil fields of treasure.
A lady laments her chicken-wire home;
Believing the cockerels out on the roam.
A lady laments good-sparkling youth
But only half hearted in truth.
A lady laments the political tool
But never the boy’s public-school.
A lady laments the critic’s eye;
Scorning only to whisper and spy.
But-above-all: what a genteel lady laments
Is that once lost innocence?
