ON SOMETHING THAT WALKS SOMEWHERE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: At court I met it, in clothes brave enough
Last Line: "for I will dare none."" good lord, walk dead still."
Subject(s): Facades; Appearances


At court I met it, in clothes brave enough
To be a courtier, and looks grave enough
To seem a statesman. As I near it came,
"A lord, it cried, buried in flesh and blood,
And such from whom let no man hope least good,
For I will do none; and as little ill,
For I will dare none." Good Lord, walk dead still.
