Sylvia Plath - Spinster

Now this particular girl
During a ceremonious april walk
With her latest suitor
Found herself, of a sudden, intolerably struck
By the birds' irregular babel
And the leaves' litter.

By this tumult afflicted, she
Observed her lover's gestures unbalance the air,
His gait stray uneven
Through a rank wilderness of fern and flower;
She judged petals in disarray,
The whole season, sloven.

How she longed for winter then! --
Scrupulously austere in its order
Of white and black
Ice and rock; each sentiment within border,
And heart's frosty discipline
Exact as a snowflake.

But here -- a burgeoning
Unruly enough to pitch her five queenly wits
Into vulgar motley --
A treason not to be borne; let idiots
Reel giddy in bedlam spring:
She withdrew neatly.

And round her house she set
Such a barricade of barb and check
Against mutinous weather
As no mere insurgent man could hope to break
With curse, fist, threat
Or love, either.

A prosecutor I would never bring a case for payback for vindictive reasons, said Ullman, whose wife, Patricia Wen, is a Globe reporter.. After reading many stories and being bombarded by fliers and rancorous television ads about the proposed second international bridge span in Detroit, I have come to an opinion.Is it possible that we Cubans have learned nothing in this great nation?" Ending with a flourish, Suarez declared, "I will not be intimidated.". I just sold a home to a man who has now decided to go abroad. Ive never heard of it, but it certainly makes sense.
