An Old Story
Comment on An Old Story and see more Edwin Arlington Robinson poems below.
Strange that I did not know him then.
That friend of mine!
I did not even show him then
One friendly sign;
But cursed him for the ways he had
To make me see
My envy of the praise he had
For praising me.
I would have rid the earth of him
Once, in my pride.
I never knew the worth of him
Until he died.
