XVIII. The Great Mystery
From ‘The White Moth’
By Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch (1863–1944)
 
IF a leaf rustled, she would start:
And yet she died a year ago.
How had so frail a thing the heart
  To journey when she trembled so?
And do they turn and turn in fright,        5
Those little feet, in so much night?
