Poem by Stephen Crane


* * *


There was one I met upon the road
Who looked at me with kind eyes.
Her said, Show me of your wares.
And this I did,
Holding forth one.
He said, It is a sin.
Then held I forth another;
He said, It is a sin.
Then held I forth another;
He said, It is a sin.
And so to the end;
Always he said, It is a sin.
And, finally, I cried out,
But I have none other.
Then did he look at me
With kinder eyes.
Poor soul! he said.
