TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. A SPRIG OF ARISTOCRACY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Browned by the sun, with face elate and joyous
Last Line: England might from her unclean wallowing rise again and live.
Subject(s): Aristocracy


BROWNED by the sun, with face elate and joyous,
Pitching hay all day in the wide and fragrant hayfields,
Frank and free, careless of wealth (preferring to do something useful, and
to champion the poor and aged)—)

O splendid boy, with many more like thee,
England might from her unclean wallowing rise again and live.
