Here is what I think is my fav of hers. Please, as usual, enjoy it.

“The best revenge is massive success.” – Frank Sinatra
Mais ou sont les neiges d’antan?
Where is the glove that I gave to him,
Perfumed and warm from my arm that night?
And where is the rose that another stole
When the land was flooded with June moonlight,
And the satin slipper I wore?—Alack,
Some one had that—it was wrong, I fear.
Where are these souvenirs today?
But where are the snows of yesteryear?
The glove was burned at his next love’s prayer,
And the rose was lost in the mire of the street;
And the satin slipper he tossed away,
For his jealous bride had not fairy feet.
Give what you will, but know, mesdames,
For a day alone are your favors dear.
Be sure for the next fair woman’s sake
They will go—like the snows of yesteryear.
