The Thin Edge - Poem by Dorothy Parker

With you, my heart is quiet here,
And all my thoughts are cool as rain.
I sit and let the shifting year
Go by before the windowpane,
And reach my hand to yours, my dear . . .
I wonder what it's like in Spain.

    A very thin edge between daydreams and reality- -a very thin edge that is sharp and cuts deep (Report) Reply
