A HUMBLE ENTREATY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I do not ask to have my fill
Last Line: Thou break me on thy wheel.
Alternate Author Name(s): Watson, John William


I DO not ask to have my fill
Of wine, or love, or fame.
I do not, for a little ill,
Against the gods exclaim.

One boon, of Fortune I implore,
With one petition kneel:
At least caress me not, before
Thou break me on thy wheel.
