[J. B. Mc Chesney ?]


[circled: 11] 3

The flowers I used to watch & love are mostly dead, & all the open gardens are trodden into dust but in crazy nooks, & aloft in the high fenced conservatories a thousand of the fairest & dearest still swell safely. Pat, Pat, Shuffle Shuffle, Crunch Crunch, I hear you all on the sidewalks & sand beds, plodding away, hoping in righteousness & heaven, & saying your prayers as best you can, Above the sand, beneath the fog & fenced by the lake & the marshes Heaven help you all & give you ice & granite
