Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950).  Spoon River Anthology.  1916.

211. Columbus Cheney


THIS weeping willow! 
Why do you not plant a few 
For the millions of children not yet born, 
As well as for us? 
Are they not non-existent, or cells asleep         5
Without mind? 
Or do they come to earth, their birth 
Rupturing the memory of previous being? 
Answer! The field of unexplored intuition is yours. 
But in any case why not plant willows for them,  10
As well as for us?
