#BookADay- Favorite Book of Poetry

 

This  small, slim volume of Parker's poetry was published in 1936. Of the three books of Parker's work that I have read this is the one that I have on my bookshelf (somewhere).

 

Contains one of my favorites, Unfortunate Coincidence:

 

By the time you swear you’re his,
     Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
     Infinite, undying –
Lady, make note of this:
     One of you is lying.
