beautiful and charming

quotation marks

…[we placed a long gilt-framed mirror] on chairs alongside our divan and [we] lay there naked in each other’s arms, so that we could see what we looked like when we made love; we had read that the spectacle was ludicrous and ugly—but we saw that that was a lie, for the spectacle was beautiful and charming.

MillayFloyd Dell describes lovemaking with the young Edna St. Vincent Millay circa 1918



And if I loved you Wednesday
···Well, what is that to you?
I do not love you Thursday—
···So much is true.

And why you come complaining
···Is more than I can see.
I loved you Wednesday,—yes—but what
···Is that to me?



Edna St. Vincent Millay
Written by Millay in the midst of her tryst with Dell

      Yes she did. Millay was independent and famously fierce. She took up and dropped men like candy bars. And she was a great poet.
