Lorine Niedecker.

Dead
she now lay deaf to death

She could have grown a good rutabaga
in the burial ground
and how she'd have loved these woods

One of her pallbearers said I
like a dumfool followed a deer
wanted to see her jump a fence --
never'd seen a deer jump a fence

pretty thing
the way she runs
