First Line: It is not good for man to be alone
Last Line: And elves of trouble hie them to the shelves.
Subject(s): Solitude; Loneliness


It is not good for man to be alone,
It oft produces gloomy thoughts that dwell
Too much on self, and issues that but swell
The crop of evils which none can atone;
Nor can the ecstasy which one may feel,
When by himself he climbs to heights sublime,
And dreams of glories on the wings of time
Ward off the nightmare of one lonesome meal.
Then it is better with the crowd to go,
Than to be lonesome and apart the while;
To gain those blessings which the others know,
To see their sorrows and enjoy their smile;
Then in their laughter, we forget ourselves,
And elves of trouble hie them to the shelves.
