"For whom do you wait?" he said, and I answered, "When she comes I shall know her."

On my hearth a tongue of flame whispered secrets to the whitening ashes. In the street below I heard footsteps, a voice, and a song.

"For whom then do you wait?" he said, and I answered, "I shall know her."

Footsteps, a voice, and a song in the street below, and I knew the song but neither the steps nor the voice.

"Fool!" he cried, "the song is the same, the voice and steps have but changed with years!"

Robert W. Chambers, The Prophet's Paradise

A wavering yowl rose in the purple gloom, and the young man frowned. It was some tomcat's love song, and there was nothing pretty about that.

Stephen King, The Man Who Loved Flowers

The Mother Load

Hiding's man does walk these streets
Scent of flowers he has bought
By the nighted summer breeze
For the lady he has sought.

Shifting shapes beyond the shine—
Love's an alien gutter-scream:
Blunted object-wielding man
Haunts the city's summer dream.

Brings the hammer down
For what it won't bring to him
And the solitary road.
Hammer crashing down
With the mother load.

Shifting shine beyond the shapes:
She claimed she was not the one.
He says one is none and all
When the root's a hidden gone.

Brings the hammer down
For what she won't bring to him
And the solitary road.
Hammer crashing down
With the mother load.

Sullen crave that drives her dream,
Yet his promises were none.
Stained with stiffen'd black unblood
From the deeds that he's non-done.

Brings that hammer down
For what none can bring to him
And the solitary road.
Hammer crashing down
With the mother load.

Brought with hammer down;
For what wasn't given him
Wrought a solitary road.
Brings him crashing down
Does the mother load.

A short film based on the Stephen King short story.
