First Line: What is man!

Subject(s): Bible; Mythology


What is Man!
1 I found him beneath a Tree
2 Water
3 Earth
4 Air
5 Fire.
6 At length for hatching ripe he breaks the shell
7 Alas!
8 My Son! my Son!
9 I want! I want!
10 Help! Help!
11 Aged Ignorance
12 Does thy God O Priest take such vengeance as this?
13 Fear & Hope are -- Vision
14 The traveller hasteth in the Evening
15 Death's Door
16 I have said to the Worm, Thou art my mother & my sister
