DRAMATIC IDYLS: 2ND SERIES. PROLOGUE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You are sick, that's sure,' they say
Last Line: Man's soul!
Subject(s): Soul

"You are sick, that's sure," - they say:
"Sick of what?" - they disagree.
"'Tis the brain," - thinks Doctor A;
"'Tis the heart," - holds Doctor B;
"The liver - my life I'd lay!"
"The lungs!" "The lights!"
Ah me!
So ignorant of man's whole
Of bodily organs plain to see -
So sage and certain, frank and free,
About what's under lock and key -
Man's soul!
