MY PICTURE-GALLERY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: In a little house keep I pictures suspended, it is not a fix'd house,
Last Line: With finger rais'd he points to the prodigal pictures.
Subject(s): Paintings & Painters


In a little house keep I pictures suspended, it is not a fix'd house,
It is round, it is only a few inches from one side to the other;
Yet behold, it has room for all the shows of the world, all memories!
Here the tableaus of life, and here the groupings of death;
Here, do you know this? this is cicerone himself,
With finger rais'd he points to the prodigal pictures.
