Love’s Wrath

They quarreled … and in cold anger she wrote him:
“I’m returning the letters—the picture—the pin.
I’m also enclosing your valentine (a worthless token).
The lace is all torn—the hearts broken.”
With righteous hurt anger he answered her letter:
“I’m returning the tiepin—the gloves—the sweater.
But I’m keeping your kisses (although you regret them).
If you want them returned—please come and get them.”
