MARY RUANE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The sky-like girl that we knew!
Last Line: Unweariedly!
Subject(s): Death - Children; Death - Babies


The sky-like girl that we knew!
She dressed herself to go to the fair
In a dress of white and blue;

A white lace cap, and ribbons white
She wore in her hair;
-- She does not hear in the night

Her mother crying for her, where
Down, deep, in the sea,
She rolls, and lingers, to and fro,

Unweariedly!
