Vachel Lindsay - The Strength of the Lonely

(What the Mendicant Said )


The moon's a monk, unmated, 
Who walks his cell, the sky.
His strength is that of heaven-vowed men
Who all life's flames defy.

They turn to stars or shadows,
They go like snow or dewó
Leaving behind no sorrowó
Only the arching blue.
