LET him who will, by force or fraud innate, Of courtly grandeurs gain the slippery

height; I, leaving not the home of my delight,

Far from the world and noise will meditate. Then, without pomps or perils of the great,

I shall behold the day succeed the night; Behold the alternate seasons take their flight, And in serene repose

old age

await.

And so, whenever Death shall come to close

The happy moments that my days compose,

I, full of years, shall die, obscure, alone! How wretched is the man, with honors

crowned, Who, having not the one thing needful

found, Dies, known to all, but to himself unknown.

September 11, 1879.
