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.
