BR OW B E C A L M A N D H E A R T B E H I G H ;
L I E S TO F U T I L E C U R S E S D U M B —
The grated door shall outward swing once more,
And I shall cross the checkered- twilight of my cell,
With hollow footfalls on the iron floor
A mockery of farewell,
Yon narrow trail, where hopeless feet have trod
From cot to narrow wall, and back again.
There Soriow paced beneath the writhing rod,
And cried aloud in pain.
There on the promenade of sleepless pain,
First learned I-knew the preachings of remorse —
And backward looked upon myself again,
As one looks on a corse.
I saw the simple flowers of childhood strown
By sunless alleys in the city slums;
Each tender impulse trampled and o’erthrown —
The tutorage of bums.
A harlotry that waited not for night
Was mother to the pallid, puny child—
Where Sin was Virtue, Madness was Delight,
And shameful Sorrow smiled!
I saw the years go by jn carnival
Of sodden days and nights of lecherous fire,
Where the poor painted Madame was "la belle” —
And love was lewd desire.
I know what sickened madness surged about,
What flames writhed ’round the leering soul, that time
The thin trembling needled arm grew stout . . .
For larger crime.
They call it Crime who paw the tomes of Law,
Clime for the noose and twirling foot and tree;
Let call it what they will, cant each wise saw--
It is release to me!
While gain is oozed from out the hauuts of shame,
Is crushed from livid flesh and rotting bone,
Say what they will— I expiate the blame—
But sinned not all alone.
This is the latest kindness that you bring
To me, my Masters of the Purple Gown—
Leave to seek peace upon the swaying string—
Leave to lie down.
So grant that this first manliness be mine.
My brow becalm and heart be high;
As one for whom his star at length does shine—
When I go forth to die!
