Poem of the Week

This was a Poet - 
It is That
Distills amazing sense
From Ordinary Meanings - 
And Attar so immense

From that familiar species
That perished by the Door - 
We wonder it was not Ourselves
Arrested it - before - 

Of Pictures, the Discloser - 
The Poet - it is He - 
Entitles Us - by Contrast - 
To ceaseless Poverty - 

Of Portion - so unconscious - 
The Robbing - could not harm - 
Himself - to Him - a Fortune - 
Exterior - to Time - 

F. 446 Reprinted by permission.
