Stephen Crane

Steven Crane (1871-1900) died early, but left behind some beautiful poems. Here is some more info about him. In the Desert In the desert I saw a creature, naked, bestial, Who, squatting upon the ground, Held his heart in his hands, And ate of it. I said, “Is it good, friend?” “It is bitter – bitter”, he answered, “But I like it Because it is bitter, And because it is my heart.” ______________________________ A man said to the universe: “Sir, I exist!” “However,” replied the universe, “The fact has not created in me A sense of obligation.”
