FOR RICHARD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A true believer in the strange
Last Line: Ever a mortal boy can tell?

A true believer in the strange,
Building a Bagdad everywhere,
He so delighted in the change
Which comes of breathing different air,
That we whom he has left behind
Past any sight, past any sound,
Must wish that death for once were kind,
And he could tell what he has found.

The lad who lightly went to meet
The adventure of the far away,
Can he return by any street,
Has he no single word to say, -
And what of us, that we can fail
To listen so intent and well
Now when he has the strangest tale
Ever a mortal boy can tell?
