LOVE-LETTERS AT AUCTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Of old, or knight or king
Last Line: Is brought one's heart.


OF old, or knight or king,
Each feared that Time would bring
Unto the block his head.
Rest peacefully, ye dead:
Yours was a gentle crime.
Now to the block by Time
(Praise the collector's art!)
Is brought one's heart.
