At a Dinner Party

Amy Levy

With fruit and flowers the board is decked,

    The wine and laughter flow;

I'll not complain--could one expect

    So dull a world to know?



You look across the fruit and flowers,

    My glance your glances find.--

It is our secret, only ours,

    Since all the world is blind.

This poem is in the public domain.
