She did NOT dwell among the untrodden ways

She did NOT dwell among the untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove,
Her room was in the middle of the business district
Next to Chinatown.

A Maid whom there were very many to praise
But very few to love,
She kept to herself and was of a few words
No one knew her whereabouts.

The alluring queen bee of this great hive
Beneath the orange sky.
- Fair as a star among the high skyscrapers
Half hidden from the eye!

She lived in public, but only a few could know
When Lucy ceased to be,
I only found her name on her grave,
The difference to me!
