IN TIME OF GRIEF, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Dark, thinned, beside the wall of stone
Last Line: After a fall of rain.
Subject(s): Grief; Sorrow; Sadness


DARK, thinned, beside the wall of stone,
The box dripped in the air;
Its odor through my house was blown
Into the chamber there.

Remote and yet distinct the scent,
The sole thing of the kind,
As though one spoke a word half meant
That left a sting behind.

I knew not Grief would go from me,
And naught of it be plain,
Except how keen the box can be
After a fall of rain.
