THE PASSER-BY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Step lightly across the floor
Last Line: Step lightly across the floor.

STEP lightly across the floor,
And somewhat more tender be.

There were many that passed my door,
Many that sought after me.
I gave them the passing word --
Ah, why did I give thee more?
I gave thee what could not be heard,
What had not been given before;
The beat of my heart I gave ...
And I give thee this flower on my grave.

My face in the flower thou mayst see.
Step lightly across the floor.
