Transcript THE LADY OF DADE JOx ABAEDQH The Lady of Dade, Anita by name, called on a seamster of worldly fame, Saying, Seamster, Make a dress for me, That I might seem lovely as a bride to be. And when he had set her in the height of fashion, He found her eyes were shot with passion, Saying, Seamster, Seamster, Look at me, Lovely as a bride to be, In my gown of satin laced with silk, Wilt thou not marry me? Whereupon the seamster, chuckling, did say, But Milady, I am a man from the Land of Fay. Whereon she ripped the gown to shreds And chided him all day. The Lady of Dade, Anita by name, Next called on a fruitman of worldly fame, Saying, Fruitman, Fruitman, find for me An orange to make a sweet soul of me. So the fruitman searched his oranges ripe, And regarding her as the greedy type, He handed her the biggest of the bunch, Saying, Lady, this will make a tasty lunch. And when Lady Dade had sucked it dry, He noticed an arrow had pierced her eye, Saying, Fruitman, Fruitman, look at me, Am I now tasty enough for thee? Oh, no, Milady, tho sweet thou be, the sweeter .fruitman he did say, For tho I may marry, A Lord he'll be, For I am a man from the Land of Fay. Whereon she spit the seeds from her throat And scolded him all day. The Lady of Dade, Anita by name, Then called on a minstrel of worldly fame, Saying, Minstrel, write a song for me That I might a dame irresistable be. Whereon he wrote an amiable tune Of birds and bees and a winking moon. And as she warbled it three times seven, She saw the first stars appear in the heavens Saying, Minstrel, Minstrel, look at me, Aren't I a nightingale meant for thee? And he answered, Oh Milady, you've been fooled today, For I, too, am a man from the Land of Fay. And cursing the minstrel and his devilish tune She hysterically stormed away. Hitchxking and meeting two guys who take you out for jokes and laugh at your drinks and beg you with innuendo3 and piteous gazes to be their sensual fantasies to be their dreads but never be too real and never be human They beg you with soft eyes to be all flesh and want and hot and new beg with gentle toughness tc give ar.d open placidly no, never let them feel guilty of wanton thoughts and uncaring desires for they are human and you are the faceless woman of their fantasies Carol Waychoff Olga Broumas: 1976 Winner, Yale Series of Younger Poets Competition The Lady of Dade, you all know her name, Called on a priest of worldly fame, Saving Father, Father, Grant to me, The power of Her who outholies thee That I might banish from our village this day The sinful men.,from the Land of Fay. For wicked theJJ are and cursed they be For none of them will marry me. The priest disguised her as a virgin maid And placed in her hands a dove Saying, Remember, Milady Anita of Dade, It must seem like an angel's act of love. So the Lady went to the village square tod beginning her speech with a tearful prayer, Demanded the flesh of all that day Who'd told her they loved in a different way. Demanded their bodies roast in flames And faggots they be called by name. So burned were the three and banished all they Who had come to her town from the Land of Fay. One blunder the Lady Anita made, She bethought her husband far away, But there, on the pyre with his lovers three, She noticed the corpse of the Lord of Dade. And from that day She has little to say Concerning the men From the Land of Fay. Randy Conners Capital Coin Co. • xr.nsi/.
