Matter: Poetry and sounds
The thrill-saw snarled and rattled within the yard
And made mud and dropped stove-length sticks of wooden,
Candy-scented stuff when the breeze drew throughout it.
And from there people who lifted eyes may depend
5 mountain ranges one behind the opposite
Beneath the sundown far into Vermont.
And the noticed snarled and rattled, snarled and rattled,
Because it ran mild, or needed to bear a load.
And nothing occurred: day was all however completed.
Name it a day, I want they may have stated
To please the boy by giving him the half hour
boy counts a lot when saved from work.
His sister stood beside them in her apron
To inform them “Supper.” On the phrase, the noticed,
As if to show saws knew what supper meant,
Leaped out on the boy’s hand, or appeared to leap—
He will need to have given the hand. Nonetheless it was,
Neither refused the assembly. However the hand!
The boy’s first outcry was a rueful snicker,
As he swung towards them holding up the hand
Half in enchantment, however half as if to maintain
The life from spilling. Then the boy noticed all—
Since he was sufficiently old to know, huge boy
Doing a person’s work, although a baby at coronary heart—
He noticed all spoiled. “Don’t let him reduce my hand off—
The physician, when he comes. Don’t let him, sister!”
So. However the hand was gone already.
The physician put him at the hours of darkness of ether.
He lay and puffed his lips out together with his breath.
After which—the watcher at his pulse took fright.
Nobody believed. They listened at his coronary heart.
Little—much less—nothing!—and that ended it.
No extra to construct on there. And so they, since they
Weren’t the one useless, turned to their affairs.
