TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. THE IDLER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I am he that beholds and praises the universe
Last Line: But dwell in the midst of them, singing.
Subject(s): Idleness; Laziness; Sloth; Indolence


I AM he that beholds and praises the universe,
Singing all day like a bird among the branches,
And the leaves put forth and the young bods burst asunder—yet I myself
do nothing at all,
But dwell in the midst of them, singing.
