Excerpt: ... THE PARTITIONING OF THE EARTH (By Schiller.) "Take ye the world," cried Jove from his high throne, To men, his thralls, "to keep and to possess; Take this, my gift, which ye shalt ever own; But portion it, that all this boon may bless." Then hurried each, and scrambled in much haste, And young and old were tireless all day; The farmer took the fields, yet bare and waste, The hunter chose the forest, there to stay. The merchant gathered all that he could store; The abbot hastened to the sweetest wine; The king claimed toll on street and river's shore, And said, "One tenth of all that grows is mine." At last, when all was claimed and fixed upon, The poet came, from whence, no mortal knew, And asked his share, but all, alas was gone, And vain the search, which he did thence pursue. "Woe, woe!" cried he, "that I alone should fail, Thy truest son, who aims but thee to please: I, who ne'er folly's stings, nor truth's travail, Did shun, to gain the sluggard's toilless ease." "If thou didst tarry in the land of dreams, Blame thou not me, if all earth's wealth has flown, Where hast thou been?" quoth Jove, "to me it seems Thou reapest that which thou alone hast sown." "Mine eye upon thy countenance did dwell, And on thy heaven's harmonies, mine ear; Forgive the spirit whom thy light's sweet spell From earthly things removed to thine own sphere." "Alas!" said Jove, "disposed of is each prize, And naught is left which I could still bestow, If thou wilt live with me in Paradise, Thou shalt at will, in freedom come and go."
