PRECIOUS WORDS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He ate and drank the precious words
Last Line: A loosened spirit brings!
Subject(s): Books; Freedom; Reading; Liberty


HE ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book. What liberty
A loosened spirit brings!
