First Line: Like one who, fruitlessly perchance
Last Line: And I shall proudly own it mine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Quaker Poet
Subject(s): Immortality


LIKE one who, fruitlessly perchance,
Engraves his name upon a tree,
In hopes to win a casual glance,
And woo remembrance still, when he
A distant wanderer may be:
Thus have I claim'd a page of thine:
Be it but reckon'd worthy thee,
And I shall proudly own it mine.
