Rosy Miller
By Jeannette Marks
I DO not ever remember having seen Rosy Miller—
I never met her,
Yet lose her I never can.
It was the speech of a friend that made her live for me—
Rosy Miller, who gave and gave;        5
Who, a child still, had learned the whole meaning of life,
Who asked nothing,
Who never held a hand out mendicant to others.
One night at dusk she came down a hill with me—
That was three years ago, that hour at dusk,        10
And now they say she is dead.
But that is a mistake:
Even for me who never knew her she still lives.
