he stilled the rising tumult, he bade the game go on. 

He signaled to the pitcher, and once more the dun sphere flew,

...I came alive
when things went
I pulled the plug on
the reports of 
sturm & drang

Are woes out-weighing tears.
Yet bright and beautiful was he,
Though barely could he walk;
And when he signaled out to sea
His talk was baby talk.

The man I loved was drowned out there
When we were ten weeks wed.
'Tis bitter hard a boy to bear
That's fathered by the dead.
And now I give my life to him
Because he needs me so;
And as I look my sight is dim
With pity, love and woe. . . .

Then suddenly I see him rise,
Tall, stalwart ...Read More
