Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935).  Collected Poems. 1921.
  
II. The Children of the Night
4. An Old Story
  
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        5
  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.…       10
I never knew the worth of him
  Until he died.
