Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950).  Spoon River Anthology.  1916.

27. Lydia Puckett


KNOWLT HOHEIMER ran away to the war 
The day before Curl Trenary 
Swore out a warrant through Justice Arnett 
For stealing hogs. 
But that’s not the reason he turned a soldier.         5
He caught me running with Lucius Atherton. 
We quarreled and I told him never again 
To cross my path. 
Then he stole the hogs and went to the war— 
Back of every soldier is a woman.  10
