Analysis and comments on Mariposa by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Comment 2 of 2, added on December 8th, 2005 at 5:37 PM.

When I was three and twenty,my girlfriend quoted this poem to me. I
married her anyway. It lasted three years. No children. Amicable
divorce. She tried to warn me. No complaints.

I liked what Millay said in Mariposa. She presented the dichotomy of life
in her symbolic and well styled way.
