Edna St. Vincent Millay

Here you will find the Poem Daphne of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay


Why do you follow me?—
Any moment I can be
Nothing but a laurel-tree.

Any moment of the chase
I can leave you in my place
A pink bough for your embrace.

Yet if over hill and hollow
Still it is your will to follow,
I am off;—to heel, Apollo!
