It don't sound so terrible quite as it did

It don’t sound so terrible quite as it did
I run it over “Dead”, Brain, “Dead.”
Put it in Latin left of my school
Seems it don’t shriek so under rule.

Turn it, a little full in the face
A Trouble looks bitterest
Shift it just
Say “When Tomorrow comes this way
I shall have waded down one Day.”

I suppose it will interrupt me some
Till I get accustomed but then the Tomb
Like other new Things shows largest then
And smaller, by Habit

It’s shrewder then
Put the Thought in advance a Year
How like “a fit” then
Murder wear!
