I think that Crane is talking about his father how he didn't want him to
die but there was nothing that he could do.

Bowery Poetry Center NYC Sunday 11/6/2005
3:00pm Second Annual Stephen Crane Festival of the Short Poem. $5 Join us
in celebrating what is distinctive about the short poem - its brevitas.
Loosely defined as longer than a haiku and shorter than a sonnet, the best
short poems can -- in performance -- be apprehended as a single thought,
and -- on the page -- communicate their meaning visually as well as
verbally. The way a short poem is lined out on a page, its form, can be
understood simultaneously with its meaning in a single moment or epiphany.
A beautiful, short poem can almost be held in ones hand, inspecting it from
all sides.
