The Dead Player: In Memory Of Dudley Digges - Poem by Padraic Colum
THE candles lighted and the figure prone
Announce this to you: they are laid aside,
The noble, whimsical and pathetic roles,
Disanimated, not to be resumed!
And still the knocks, the three, the solemn knocks!
The role we singled when we spoke his name,
Of instant goodness and deep faithfulness
Will be sustained beyond the curtain fall.
