Parker, 'Dark Girl's Rhyme'

This comes rather late, but: it always seemed to me this reflects Parker's
dislike of her own Jewish background; here she translates it as merely a
Bohemian strain. She jokingly always said she married Mr. Parker because he
had "a nice, clean name". Moreover, she once famously said, "I was just a
little Jewish girl, trying to be cute." This rhyme, I believe, both
glamorizes and reflects her innate shame of her ethnicity.

You've probably already finished analyzing but in case you haven't, the
poem is about her and her love. He was "better than her" by society's
standards. The poem is her lamenting about how they could never really be
together, partly because no one wanted them to be, and partially because
she felt like she would never be good enough.
