Poem by Stephen Crane


* * *


There was a man who lived a life of fire.
Even upon the fabric of time,
Where purple becomes orange
And orange purple,
This life glowed,
A dire red stain, indelible;
Yet when he was dead,
He saw that he had not lived.



Stephen Crane

  3. In heaven
  4. Mystic shadow, bending near me
