DPF / Lowell

For women of every varying belief today, from No More Masks: An Anthology of Twentieth-Century Women Poets. 

from The Sisters / by Amy Lowell

Sappho would speak, I think, quite openly,
And, Mrs. Browning guard a careful silence,
But Emily would set doors ajar and slam them
And love you for your speed of observation.
