Poor Edna; she "gave a lovely light," but between bursts of poems between her sexual exploits had trouble being comfortable with her life. In "What Lips my Lips Have Kissed" she regrets the loss of those headier times, and here, she almost seems bored with her life. But the wild swans are so compelling!
When I was very young and newly in love, the girl I sought sang a musical adaptation of this poem that I've never heard since.
