Subject(s): Mankind; Human Race


My father understood Latin,
My mother played the piano
And went calling,
Do you understand me, little one,
Do you see?

I had a tutor,
A horse,
A gun,
A groom and outriders—
Do you see?

But I was too fond of books
And sad eyes and sad hearts,
Do you understand, little one?

We loved tears too well,
And loved, and the losers,
Passersby, and their roads. ...
Let us light the fire
And dust our books;
Do you understand?

Let us dust our books
And brush our clothes,
And shine our shoes. ...
Do you see?

And shine our shoes,
And wash the dishes.
Do you understand, little one,
Do you see?
