Black Riders & Other Lines – Stephen Crane

Black Riders and Other Lines

More poetry. I’d not read Stephen Crane outside of high school. It was nice recalling where I’d first read the lines: “Because it is bitter, And because it is my heart” and

Yes, I have a thousand tongues,
And nine and ninety-nine lie.
Though I strive to use the one,
It will make no melody at my will,
But is dead in my mouth.

Who said there is no beauty in truth?
