On the tap-room wall, in a very bad scrawl,
He has chalked to us a sum.

These Days

It is strange in these days how no one seems to care.

And see the way you lived, but I don't know!

The buzz-saw snarled and rattled in the yard
And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood,
Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.
And from there those that lifted eyes could count

Where its black body cut into the sky.
