Song
 
Adelaide Crapsey (1878–1914)
 
 
I MAKE my shroud, but no one knows—
So shimmering fine it is and fair,
With stitches set in even rows,
I make my shroud, but no one knows.
 
In door-way where the lilac blows,        5
Humming a little wandering air,
I make my shroud and no one knows,
So shimmering fine it is and fair.
