Angélique
by Adelaide Crapsey


Have you seen Angélique,
What way she went?
A white robe she wore,
A flickering light near spent
Her pale hand bore.


Have you seen Angélique?
Will she know the place
Dead feet must find,
The grave-cloth on her face
To make her blind?


Have you seen Angélique. .
At night I hear her moan,
And I shiver in my bed;
She wanders all alone,
She cannot find the dead.
