Subject(s): Poetry & Poets


To you, dear Wife—to whom beside so well?—
True Counselor and tried, at every shift,
I bring my "Book of Counsels:" let it tell
Largeness of love by littleness of gift:

And take this growth of foreign skies from me,
(A scholar's thanks for gentle help in toil,)
Whose leaf, "though dark," like Milton's Hæmony,
"Bears a bright golden flower, if not in this soil."
