Lament

 
 

Paradise hath no need of rules

Hades scribes a dozen score

the generous spirit ranges free

the hidebound locks the door

 

I’ve roamed the barren fields of night

walked the thorny wild

borne the yoke of a thousand ills

borne them meek and mild
 

Calm lies the diurnal shore

though tempests break at sea

in dearth of human solicitude

lies the true heart’s atrophy

 

Immure me in penury

steal from me my weal

let love but loan me one fair breath

and I shall, though dying, heal
