Edna St. Vincent Millay: what shoes she wore

People dress and go to town;
      I sit in my chair.
All my thoughts are slow and brown:
Standing up or sitting down
Little matters, or what gown
      Or what shoes I wear.
(From “Sorrow,” by Edna St. Vincent Millay)

    I adore Edna St Vincent Millay, whose burning candle ended much too soon. The picture of her shoes is priceless — this is the debonaire, dancing lady who took The Village by storm. Thank you!
