THE THREE SISTERS
by: Arthur Davison Ficke
- ONE 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
- Of only two, your ivy vine.
- For one was wise and one was fair,
- But one was mine.
