663

by
E. Dickins

Again — his voice
       the
           ask the
            one — as me —

I        flower —
           justify —
                   this
I

                 with         steps —
 — silent —
  look             world
     his face —

           careless — and
                  strain —
Each —
    — how —
               — had been —

We walk
         thoughtful      —
     with us — just a little
And — then —

Alone — if            "alone" —
                    the sky
                veiled
We cannot

            live that hour —
The purple —    my Vein —
                  the drops —
My                 stain
