Witch-Wife by Edna St.Vincent Millay

Départ pour le Sabbat by Albert Joseph Penot

Witch-Wife by Edna St.Vincent Mallay:1892 – 1950

She is neither pink nor pale,

And she never will be all mine;

She learned her hands in a fairy-tale,

And her mouth on a valentine.

She has more hair than she needs;

In the sun ’tis a woe to me!

And her voice is a string of colored beads,

Or steps leading into the sea.

She loves me all that she can,

And her ways to my ways resign;

But she was not made for any man,

And she never will be all mine.
