Excerpt from Songs of Love and War

You wonder, my friend, why so seldom I print The fanciful thoughts which I weave into verse; You ?atter my Muse by your delicate hint Of fame in the future, of gold in my purse You ask why I write, if but few are to read; Yo'u talk of the wasting of talent and time; I covet not fame, am accustomed to need, And men do not Offer their riches for rhyme.

Consider the lark! How he rises on wing, And mounts to the sky through ethereal air! He sings as he soars; 'tis his nature to sing To warble his notes though no listener be near I seek not for fortune, I sigh not for fame, I follow my Muse into forest, or street; In sorrow, in gladness, I sing all the same, I sing because singing itself is so sweet.
