If You Hear that I Died

Posted on

If you hear that I died

On a freezing night,
The wind hardly letting
Trees stand up, but fight;
In the thunderous smother
Raindrops torn to bits,
Every high tree top
When the lightning hits;
The streets lost dark
And the paved walks cracked,
The street-lamps felled
And doomed when hacked;
Bewilderment hung
On two haunted eyes,
Oblivious, unpressed
Where the whirlwind cries,

Would you come to see me?

Too much to expect
From one woman –
Even if you come,
What good would it be?
