Trumbull Stickney (1874-1904)

The Passions that we Fought with and Subdued


              1The passions that we fought with and subdued
              2Never quite die. In some maimed serpent's coil
              3They lurk, ready to spring and vindicate
              4That power was once our torture and our lord.
