Need not more to be
Thankful for we only need
To be more thankful

Not unlike the anatomical errors in Joyce's 'Trees', the image is fallacious and self contradictory - a raised boot wil show a sole to a small creature threatened by it, not any part of the boot in which that creature could see its own reflection. This kind of error destroys the very essence of the poem.
