Amelia Josephine Burr

  • The people whom I take to walk / I love and yet deplore, / Such things of real importance / They persistently ignore. / ... / Sometimes I really wonder / If they can hear and smell; / Such vital things escape them — / And yet they mean so well!

    • Amelia Josephine Burr,
    • "A Dog's Eye View," in St. Nicholas Magazine ()

Amelia Josephine Burr, U.S. poet
