Thoughts While Walking
By Maxwell Bodenheim
From “Charcoals”

  A STEEL hush freezes the trees—
It is my mind stretched to stiff lace
And draped on high, wide thoughts.
  My soul is a large sapless park,
And people walk on it, as they do on the park before me.        5
They numb my levelness with dumb feet—
Yet I cannot even hate them.
