A Reading Of Life--The Vital Choice - Poem by George Meredith
Or shall we run with Artemis
Or yield the breast to Aphrodite?
Both are mighty;
Both give bliss;
Each can torture if divided;
Each claims worship undivided,
In her wake would have us wallow.
Youth must offer on bent knees
Homage unto one or other;
Earth, the mother,
And unto the pallid Scyther
Either points us shun we either
Shun or too devoutly follow.
