The Parade
By Dorothy Butts
From “The Passers-by”

FACES, laughing and torch-lit,
Passing and passing—
Laughing and torch-lit and passing!
Voices, crying and shouting,
Dying and dying—        5
Crying and shouting and dying!
Drums, beating and thumping,
Retreating, retreating—
Beating and thumping, retreating!
Gone! There remains but the heat        10
Of the August night-wind
Blowing a leaf down the street.
