Poem of the Day: “Grainne’s Answer to Burke’s Proposal” by Mary O’Malley

Grainne“Grainne’s Answer to Burke’s Proposal” by Mary O’Malley from The Wake Forest Book of Irish Women’s Poetry

Take me for one year certain
hot and cold and strong.
What woman will give you
as much for that long?
A year in a wild place.
Take me or leave me as I am.
