I THOUGHT then of Cophetua, the king,
Who by a girl's singing and clear eyes
Was moved to wed his power to her spring,
And so was wise.

And of myself, who saw the gypsies take the road
And wondered what my study gave
To match the carelessness those vagrants showed —
But lacked the wisdom to be brave.
