Lest guilty of my faults thy sweet self prove:

Walt Whitman
You Have Crossed The Rubicon

I was a young vine with leaves until you turned me into a pine.

The pride of many men, until you smeared me with lust.

Hidden deep in the earth away.”

The Female Of The Species

When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride,
He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside.

For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

To bound the waters with an iron might.

Benjamin Chikezie
In All Ways A Woman

In my young years I took pride in the fact that luck was called a lady. In fact, there were so few public acknowledgments of the female presence that I felt personally honored whenever nature and large ships were referred to as feminine. But as I matured, I began to resent being considered a sister to a changeling as fickle as luck, as aloof as an ocean, and as frivolous as nature. The phrase 'A woman always has the right to change her mind' played so aptly into the negative image of the female that I made myself a victim to an unwavering decision. Even if I made an inane and stupid choice, I stuck by it rather than 'be like a woman and change my mind.'

Being a woman is hard work. Not without joy and even ecstasy, but still relentless, unending work. Becoming an old female may require only being born with certain genitalia, inheriting long-living genes and the fortune not to be run over by an out-of-control truck, but to become and remain a woman command the existence and employment of genius.

Another spring renews the soldier's toil,
And finds me vacant in the rural cave.

Love's Supremacy

As yon great Sun in his supreme condition
Absorbs small worlds and makes them all his own,
So does my love absorb each vain ambition
Each outside purpose which my life has known.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The School At War

All night before the brink of death
In fitful sleep the army lay,
For through the dream that stilled their breath
Too gauntly glared the coming day.

Early Autumn

With half-hearted levies of frost that make foray,

Ambiguous bugles that blow and that falter to
silence again-
