A Visitor in Marl –

A Visitor in Marl --A Visitor in Marl –
Who influences Flowers –
Till they are orderly as Busts –
And Elegant — as Glass –

Who visits in the Night –
And just before the Sun –
Concludes his glistening interview –
Caresses — and is gone –

But whom his fingers touched –
And where his feet have run –
And whatsoever Mouth be kissed –
Is as it had not been –

I felt my life with both my hands

I felt my life with both my handsI felt my life with both my hands
To see if it was there –
I held my spirit to the Glass,
To prove it possibler –

I turned my Being round and round
And paused at every pound
To ask the Owner’s name –
For doubt, that I should know the Sound –

I judged my features — jarred my hair –
I pushed my dimples by, and waited –
If they — twinkled back –
Conviction might, of me –

I told myself, “Take Courage, Friend –
That — was a former time –
But we might learn to like the Heaven,
As well as our Old Home!”
