Another poem

I'm so, so, so sorry to wimp out on you guys, but I've just been so caught up in the election, that I haven't had time to come up with new material. I've also started my NaNoWriMo novel, and in an attempt to match the good pace set by jemima, I've fallen short on the creativity side. But I do like poetry and tonight, rather than sharing an entire poem with you, I'm sharing one of my favorite stanzas with all of y'all (complete poem can be found here:

The Lady's Yes

Yes !" I answered you last night ;
" No !" this morning, Sir, I say !
Colours, seen by candle-light,
Will not look the same by day.

-- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
