Being Young And Green

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Edna St. Vincent Millay

Being Young and Green, I said in love's despite:
Never in the world will I to living wight
Give over, air my mind
To anyone,
Hang out its ancient secrets in the strong wind
To be shredded and faded-
Oh, me, invaded
And sacked by the wind and the sun!
