Today's poem - Grown-Up by Edna St.Vincent Millay

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Was it for this I uttered prayers,
And sobbed and cursed and kicked the stairs,
That now, domestic as a plate,
I should retire at half-past eight?


  1. Maybe not half past eight but I ought to be in bed by half past ten. Usually I am not. Ha!

  2. Some nights I am in bed by half past eight - read for a bit and then lights out!
    I love the photo on your header with the mist and fall colours - I can almost smell that fall smell of decay and I feel ready for soup and fresh bread followed by baked apples!

  3. I'm usually in bed by half past 9, but then I get up at 5:30! I splurge and sleep 'til 7:30 on the weekends. ;)

  4. I love this poem. It is nice to find another blogger who appreciates poetry.

  5. Boy can I identify with that! LOL
