A FENCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now the stone house on the lake front is finished
Last Line: Except death and the rain and to-morrow.
Subject(s): Fences; Houses


Now the stone house on the lake front is finished and the workmen
are beginning the fence.
The palings are made of iron bars with steel points that can stab the
life out of any man who falls on them.
As a fence, it is a masterpiece, and will shut off the rabble and all
vagabonds and hungry men and all wandering children looking for a
place to play.
Passing through the bars and over the steel points will go nothing
except Death and the Rain and To-morrow.
