A Man to a Dead Woman
By Maxwell Bodenheim
From “Sketches in Color”

  SHAKING nights, noons tame and dust-quiet, and wind-broken days,
Were hands modeling your face.
Yet people—the best of them—glanced at you, and passed on.
  And now, perhaps some of them meet to say little true things of you:
Quickly weighing tiny stray chips of you—        5
They who did not know you.
