Last Line: "the pangs you dealt outvie!"
Subject(s): Pain; Suffering; Misery

"I'VE borne so much already,"
A little flow'ret moans;
"So oft rough hands have pelted
My head with sand and stones!

"Oft, too, have footsteps heavy
Caused me such anguish keen,
It seemed for long, long hours
Destroyed my life had been!

"But when, your way pursuing,
You calmly passed me by,
All pain that I have suffered
The pangs you dealt outvie!"
