  INSPECT US  

Out of the clothes that cover me
    Tight as the skin is on the grape,
I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable shape.

In the fell clutch of bone and steel
    I have not whined nor cried aloud;
Whatever else I may conceal,
    I show my thoughts unshamed and proud.

The forms of other actorines
    I put away into the shade;
All of them flossy near-blondines
    Find and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how straight the tape,
    How cold the weather is, or warm--
I am the mistress of my shape--
    I am the captain of my form.

                             Edith Daniell.
