THE FIRST LESSON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Not in this world to see his face
Last Line: Himself could have the skies.
Subject(s): Love


Not in this world to see his face
Sounds long, until I read the place
Where this is said to be
But just the primer to a life
Unopened, rare, upon the shelf,
Clasped yet to him and me.
And yet, my primer suits me so
I could not choose a book to know
Than that, be sweeter wise;
Might some one else so learned be,
And leave me just my A B C,
Himself could have the skies.
