Dorothy Parker

(22 August 1893 - 7 June 1967 / Long Branch / New Jersey)

Cherry White


I never see that prettiest thing-
A cherry bough gone white with Spring-
But what I think, "How gay 'twould be
To hang me from a flowering tree."

    I really like this poem because it shows a dark side of Dorothy. Even though she was suicidal at times, she was also humble and witty as well. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
