IN 'DESIGNING A CLOAK TO CLOAK HIS DESIGNS' YOU WRESTED FROM OBLIVION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Cowed by his uningenious will
Last Line: To serve two masters.
Subject(s): Clothing & Dress; Immortality


a Coat of Immortality for your own Use.

COWED by his uningenious will
Of dragon-like demeanor, till
It left them orphans.

His foibles clustered underneath
Him, dominated by a wreath
Of upright half notes.

Encumbered as he was with pride,
But for that coat he might have died
So despicably

That kindness might have seemed unkind
Had not the garment been designed
To serve two masters.
