Alternate Author Name(s): Newcastle, Duchess Of; Lucas, Margaret
Subject(s): Bodies; Heads; Humanity; Life; Skin


THE Nerves are France, and Italy, and Spain;
The Liver Britain, the Narrow Sea each Vein;
The Spleen is Aethiopia, wherein
Is bred a people of black and tawny skin;
The Stomach is like Aegypt, and the Chyle,
Which through the body flows, is as the Nile;
The Head and Heart both Indies are; each Ear
Doth like the South and Northern Poles appear;
The Lungs are rocks and caverns, whence rise winds,
Where Life, which passes through, great danger finds.
