Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Second Book of Modern Verse.  1922.
 
Blind
 
Harry Kemp
 
 
THE SPRING blew trumpets of color;
Her Green sang in my brain—
I heard a blind man groping
“Tap—tap” with his cane;
 
I pitied him in his blindness;        5
But can I boast, “I see”?
Perhaps there walks a spirit
Close by, who pities me,—
 
A spirit who hears me tapping
The five-sensed cane of mind        10
Amid such unguessed glories—
That I am worse than blind.
