Dorothy Parker

22 August 1893 - 7 June 1967 / Long Branch / New Jersey

Sight

Unseemly are the open eyes
That watch the midnight sheep,
That look upon the secret skies
Nor close, abashed, in sleep;

That see the dawn drag in, unbidden,
To birth another day-
Oh, better far their gaze were hidden
Below the decent clay.
