Would you love me still?
If I was born in New England,
Speak in tongues of many nations,
Dance like a graceful—swan,
Walk like I own the best pavilion:
Would you love me—still?
If I change my style of speaking,
to fit in: to be somewhat like you?
Then, I will try my best to love you,
even when it may feel like,
the hardest thing to do!
