Behold the grave of a wicked man

Written by: Stephen Crane | Biography
 | Quotes (8) |
 Behold, the grave of a wicked man,
And near it, a stern spirit.
There came a drooping maid with violets, But the spirit grasped her arm.
"No flowers for him," he said.
The maid wept: "Ah, I loved him.
" But the spirit, grim and frowning: "No flowers for him.
" Now, this is it -- If the spirit was just, Why did the maid weep?
