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, U.S. poet
(1878 - 1968)
