(31 October 1795 – 23 February 1821 / London, England)

"This Earth-Life! "

Ask a soul, who is the essence
Of the child, eternal
What distracts it, momentarily
These long years, but for all
And it will point you: "this earth-life! "
That boxed up, for a toy
Shiny as new, wound up as morn's
Carefree-held noisy joy.
Wise to the process, taught through tears
Of having to accept
Its workings sometimes grate; or worse;
Fall apart; not well kept.
