Mystic shadow, bending near me

Mystic shadow, bending near me

Mystic shadow, bending near me,
Who art thou?
Whence come ye?
And tell me is it fair
Or is the truth bitter as eaten fire?

Tell me!
Fear not that I should quaver.
For I dare I dare.
Then, tell me!



Poem Mystic shadow, bending near me - Stephen Crane
