Being Young And Green

Being Young and Green, I said in love's despite:
Never in the world will I to living wight
Give over, air my mind
To anyone,
Hang out its ancient secrets in the strong wind
To be shredded and faded—

Oh, me, invaded
And sacked by the wind and the sun!

    Millay expresses the acknowledgement of maturity that we were mistaken in our youth, yet how glad we are to have been in error!
