    The poem around the Corner is in Towne's book, 'A World of Windows' 1919 George Doran Co. Publisher. Don't know if this is the first appearance of it but it is in the table of contents...

Best Poem of Charles Hanson Towne

Of One Self-Slain

When he went blundering back to God,
   His songs half written, his work half done,
Who knows what paths his bruised feet trod,
   What hills of peace or pain he won?

I hope God smiled and took his hand,
   And said, "Poor truant, passionate fool!
Life's book is hard to understand:
   Why couldst thou not remain at school?"
