688. Identity
 
By Thomas Bailey Aldrich
 
 
SOMEWHERE—in desolate wind-swept space—
  In Twilight-land—in No-man’s-land—
Two hurrying Shapes met face to face,
  And bade each other stand.
 
“And who are you?” cried one a-gape,        5
  Shuddering in the gloaming light.
“I know not,” said the second Shape,
  “I only died last night!”
