Stanza XVI from 'Stanzas in Meditation' by Gertrude Stein

Should they call me what they call me
When they come to call on me
And should I be satisfied with all three 
When all three are with me
Or should I say may they stay
Or will they stay with me
On no account must they cry out
About which one went where they went
In time to stay away may be they do
But I doubt it
As they were very much able to stay there. 20 more words

Stein on France, Progress, History

“The background of tradition of profound conviction that men and women and children do not change, that science is interesting but does not change anything, that democracy is real but that governments unless they tax you too much or get you defeated by the enemy are of no importance.”
