ANY WOMAN SPEAKS
by Angela Manalang Gloria


Half of the world's true glamour
     Is held--you know by whom?
Not by the gilt Four Hundred
     Parading in perfume,

Nor by the silvered meteors
     That light the celluloid sky--
But by these eyes that called you,
     Blind fool who passed me by!

      

This poem is from POEMS (1940).
