“O how can it be that the ground itself does not sicken?
How can you be alive you growths of spring?
How can you furnish health you blood of herbs, roots, orchards, grain?

Is not every continent workd over and over with sour dead?”

In Maryland, wherever corpses married
Under the rubble, bundled together?”
