Undercurrents
By Helen Birch-Bartlett
 
From “A Line-a-day for Certain Lovers”

THERE were warnings and devious oppositions:
Frankness, simplicity,
And many, many undercurrents.
And all the while I knew that what they feared of me
I had no desire to accomplish.
.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

I took as much—as little—all that I wanted, all.
 
I alone guessed how much it was;
But they blessed me, sighing in their relief,
For how little.
