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

8. Amanda Barker


HENRY got me with child, 
Knowing that I could not bring forth life 
Without losing my own. 
In my youth therefore I entered the portals of dust. 
Traveler, it is believed in the village where I lived         5
That Henry loved me with a husband’s love, 
But I proclaim from the dust 
That he slew me to gratify his hatred.
