Cherry White - Poem by Dorothy Parker

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
