But later your vision watched for men and women Hiding in burrows of fate amid great cities, Looking for the souls of them to come out, So that you could see How they lived, and for what, And why they kept crawling so busily Along the sandy way where water fails As the summer wanes. Death comes to everyone in society such as the disliked, low classed people and also to the people with power, fame, and that are high in society. Yet all the while I hungered for meaning in my life. I pass the effect of my father and mother; The milliner's daughter made me trouble And out I went in the world, Where I passed through every peril known Of wine and women and joy of life.

Sweet it was to see the crowds about the lawns on the day of my funeral, And hear them murmur their love and sorrow. Wilmans, Harry Witt, Zenas Yee Bow Zoll, Perry The Hill Where are Elmer, Herman, Bert, Tom and Charley, The weak of will, the strong of arm, the clown, the boozer, the fighter? Over me a fond father erected this marble shaft, On which stands the figure of a woman Carved by an Italian artist. It was legal in the United States from the time the earliest settlers arrived.

There were Benjamin Pantier and his wife, Good in themselves, but evil toward each other; He oxygen, she hydrogen, Their son, a devastating fire.

Or gather hazel nuts among the thickets On Aaron Hatfield's farm when the frosts begin? Minerva Jones tells us she was raped by Butch Weldy and died during an abortion.
