    Silence

    If silence is to avoid the restless crowd

We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.

But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
'Good-morning,' and he glittered when he walked.

And he was rich - yes, richer than a king -
And admirably schooled in every grace:
In fine, we thought that he was everything

There were three kinds of men where I was born:
The good, the not so good, and Tasker Norcross.
Now there are two kinds.”
