Too Late Smart

[During her lifetime, Sibyl Mary Croly was a prolific poet. So far I have found over 200 published and unpublished poems. A Square Inch of Space (1974) and Mock Us Gently (1978) contained collections of her works. Numerous other poems were published in newspapers and magazines from 1902 to at least 1978.]

Throughout a life of jolts and bumps
I might have spared myself some lumps
if I had earlier learned to say,
“You may be right; let’s try your way.”

[Published in “A Square Inch of Space” (1974).]

All of Sibyl’s poetry published to date on this website can be seen in these posts:
