The Three Sisters
 
Arthur Davison Ficke
 
 
GONE are the three, those sisters rare
  With wonder-lips and eyes ashine.
One was wise and one was fair,
  And one was mine.
 
Ye mourners, weave for the sleeping hair        5
  Of only two, your ivy vine.
For one was wise and one was fair,
  But one was mine.
