I envy Seas, whereon He rides —
I envy Spokes of Wheels
Of Chariots, that Him convey —
I envy Crooked Hills.

That gaze upon his journey —
How easy all can see.
What is forbidden utterly
As Heaven — unto me!

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.

Drama's Vitallest Expression is the Common Day
That arise and set about Us —
Other Tragedy

Perish in the Recitation —
This — the best enact
When the Audience is scattered
And the Boxes shut.
