|The Lady Poverty|
By Jacob Fisher
(Contemporary American poet)
|I MET her on the Umbrian Hills,|
| Her hair unbound, her feet unshod;|
|As one whom secret glory fills|
| She walked alonewith God.|
|I met her in the city street;|| 5|
| Oh, changed her aspect then!|
|With heavy eyes and weary feet|
| She walked alonewith men.|
