Zora Cross tweet poetry

Zora Cross was an Australian poet, writer and journalist  (May 1890 – January 1964). She was born in Brisbane of Irish descent, and known for her poems and independent private life scandalous by the standards of her time. She wrote about sex, war and childbirth.

This is an extract from Love Sonnet 54 (although Zora uses Roman numerals) 

Dearest it seems my very wants would prove I am yourself dreaming we measure two And lack myself that which yourself supplies
