Newark, New Jersey, United States] (November 1, 1871 – June 5, 1900 / New Jersey

I Heard Thee Laugh

I HEARD thee laugh,
And in this merriment
I defined the measure of my pain;
I knew that I was alone,
Alone with love,
Poor shivering love,
And he, little sprite,
Came to watch with me,
And at midnight
We were like two creatures by a dead camp-fire.
