The Lady Poverty

By Jacob Fisher

(Contemporary American poet)
I MET her on the Umbrian Hills,
  Her hair unbound, her feet unshod;
As one whom secret glory fills
  She walked alone—with God.
I met her in the city street;        5
  Oh, changed her aspect then!
With heavy eyes and weary feet
  She walked alone—with men.
