V. The South Seas
6. There’s Wisdom in Women
  
“OH love is fair, and love is rare;” my dear one she said,
“But love goes lightly over.” I bowed her foolish head,
And kissed her hair and laughed at her. Such a child was she;
So new to love, so true to love, and she spoke so bitterly.
  
But there’s wisdom in women, of more than they have known,        5
And thoughts go blowing through them, are wiser than their own,
Or how should my dear one, being ignorant and young,
Have cried on love so bitterly, with so true a tongue?
