THE RUINED MIND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Ah! Sad it is to see the deck
Last Line: In their worst shape -- the ruined mind?
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia


AH! sad it is to see the deck
Dismasted of some noble wreck;
And sad to see the marble stone
Defaced, and with gray moss o'ergrown;
And sad to see the broken lute
For ever to its music mute,
But what is lute, or fallen tower,
Or ship sunk in its proudest hour,
To awe and majesty combined
In their worst shape -- the ruined mind?
