Subject(s): Worry

My name is Worry and I force myself
Like some persistent caller on the day
Which might be merry as a gladsome elf
From dawn till evening could it have its way
And I remain aloof. If soothing night
Could tuck to rest upon its trundle-bed
The weary world and I not claim my right
To fret it till its drowsiness had fled,
No one would call me Worry and my name
Might quite as well be Tweedledee or -dum
And every day, as surely as it came,
Would dance without a thought of years to come
But, still, would wander an inferior race
Half beast, half man, left living by God's grace.
