THE SPHINX, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I know all about the sphinx
Last Line: She was just cut out for that!
Alternate Author Name(s): Johnson Of Boone, Benj. F.
Subject(s): Dreams; Egypt; Silence; Sphinx; Statues; Nightmares

I KNOW all about the Sphinx --
I know even what she thinks,
Staring with her stony eyes
Up forever at the skies.

For last night I dreamed that she
Told me all the mystery --
Why for aeons mute she sat: --
She was just cut out for that!
