At a Dinner Party
by Amy Levy

With fruit and flowers the board is decked,

The wine and laughter flow;

I'll not complain--could one expect

So dull a world to know?


You look across the fruit and flowers,

My glance your glances find.--

It is our secret, only ours,

Since all the world is blind.
