140. Letters to Dead Imagists
 
 
EMILY DICKINSON:

YOU gave us the bumble bee who has a soul,
The everlasting traveler among the hollyhocks,
And how God plays around a back yard garden.
 
STEVIE CRANE:

War is kind and we never knew the kindness of war till you came;
Nor the black riders and clashes of spear and shield out of the sea,        5
Nor the mumblings and shots that rise from dreams on call.
