Love’s Wrath

They quarreled … and in cold anger she wrote him:

“I’m returning the letters—the picture—the pin.

I’m also enclosing your valentine (a worthless token).

The lace is all torn—the hearts broken.”

With righteous hurt anger he answered her letter:

“I’m returning the tiepin—the gloves—the sweater.

But I’m keeping your kisses (although you regret them).

If you want them returned—please come and get them.”
