Edgar Lee Masters - Andy the Night-Watch

In my Spanish cloak,
And old slouch hat,
And overshoes of felt,
And Tyke, my faithful dog,
And my knotted hickory cane,
I slipped about with a bull's-eye lantern
From door to door on the square,
As the midnight stars wheeled round,
And the bell in the steeple murmured
From the blowing of the wind;
And the weary steps of old Doc Hill
Sounded like one who walks in sleep,
And a far-off rooster crew.
And now another is watching Spoon River
As others watched before me.
And here we lie, Doc Hill and I
Where none breaks through and steals,
And no eye needs to guard.

Thank you for being kind and understanding with LJ. At
least she read the poem. Most 13 year olds are too self-absorbed to read anything but Harry Potter (or maybe they would just wait for the movie). text-messages from their friends are about the limit of their literary exposure. I must say I'm not much better. I have just discovered Edgar Lee Masters. I can almost see, feel, taste, and smell the way he descirbes life in his poetry. I will keep reading ELM.
