The life goes out, how many things result Fate drops a stone, and to the utmost shores The circles spread. Now, such a book were endless, If every circle, riffle should be traced Of any life and so of Elenor Murray, Whose life was humble and whose death was tragic. And yet behold the riffles spread, the lives That are affected, and the secrets gained Of lives she never knew of, as for that. For even the world could not contain the books That should be written, if all deeds were traced, Effects, results, gains, losses, of her life, And of her death. Concretely said, in brief, A man and woman have produced this child What was the child s pre natal circumstance How did her birth affect the father, mother What did their friends, old women, relatives Take from the child in feeling, joy or pain to DOMESDAY BOOK What of her childhood friends, her days at school, Her teachers, girlhood sweethearts, lovers later, When she became a woman What of these And what of those who got effects because They knew this Elenor Murray Read how the human secrets are exposed In many lives because she died not all Then she dies. Lives, by her death affected, written here. The reader may trace out such other riffles As come to him this book must have an end. Enough is shown to show what could be told If we should write a world of books. In brief One feature of the plot elaborates The closeness of one life, however humble With every life upon this globe. In truth I sit here in Chicago, housed and fed, And think the world secure, at peace, the clock Just striking three, in Europe striking eight And in some province, in some palace, hut, Some words are spoken, or a fisticuff Results between two brawlers, and for that A blue eyed boy, my grandson, we may say, Not even yet in seed, but to be born A half a century hence, is by those words, That fisticuff, drawn into war in Europe, and lies Shrieks from a bullet through the groin, Under the sod of France. But to return To Elenor Murray, I have made a book Called Domesday Book, a census spiritual Taken of our America, or in part Taken, not wholly taken, it may be. For William Merival, the coroner, Who probed the death of Elenor Murray goes As far as may be, and beyond his power, In diagnosis of America, While finding out the cause of death. In short Becomes a William the Conqueror that way In making up a Domesday Book for us. ... Of this a little later...
