The Beauty Lover
By Claire Bu Zard
(From A Second Pagan Anthology, 1919)

THE ROUND, pink, laughing girl bathes,
And the thin, grey, silent girl watches.
…. And afterwards,
When the bather dries herself,
And puts powder under her arms,        5
And lies down, like a sleepy flower,—
The grey girl catches her around the hips, violently,
And kisses her:
Surprised, the pink girl draws away;
And the grey girl—        10
(Poor little restless lover of beauty)—
And is ashamed.
