Amy Lowell’s “A Decade”

Amy Lowell’s “A Decade”

0 1271

A native New Englander, imagist poet Amy Lowell’s work was inspired by beauty from the very beginning. Though she was first stirred to write a poem after seeing the actress Eleonora Duse on stage, the real love of her life was another actress, Ada Russell. The two were together for 15 years.  – Source: AfterEllen

When you came, you were like red wine and honey,

And the taste of you burnt my mouth with its sweetness.

Now you are like morning bread,

Smooth and pleasant.

I hardly taste you at all for I know your savour,

But I am completely nourished.

I'm currently working in intensive care, where I handle most cases of post liver transplants and liver disease. Other than that, I like hanging out at the library, just being a total nerd all the time.
