by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

Come along in then, little girl!
Language: English 
Come along in then, little girl!
Or else stay out!
But in the open door she stands,
And bites her lip and twists her hands,
And stares upon me, trouble-eyed:
"Mother," she says, "I can't decide!
I can't decide!"
