Compensations
By Carlyle F. McIntyre
 
From “Rodomontades”

YOU came with Judith’s flashing eye
  And artlessness grown art.
Oh, most notorious perfidy!—
  You took both head and heart.
 
Yet Time bore compensations sweet:        5
  My age upon your youth
Is warm as Father Boaz’ feet
  Upon the breasts of Ruth.
