Give crowns and pounds and guineas/But not your heart away;
About the woodlands I will go/To see the cherry hung with snow.
The Grizzly Bear is huge and wild; He has devoured the infant child.
So set, before its echoes fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade,
And early though the laurel grows/ It withers quicker than the rose.
I hear you, I will come.
There's this to say for blood and breath, They give a man a taste for death.
They put arsenic in his meat/And stared aghast to watch him eat;
The rose-lipt girls are sleeping/In fields where roses fade.
To live and shame the land/From which we sprung
A tear stood in his bright blue eye/And gladly he would have tarried;
Keep we must, if keep we can/These foreign laws of God and man
But young men think it is, And we were young.
I, a stranger and afraid/In a world I never made
And silence sounds no worse than cheers/ After earth has stopped the ears:
Life, to be sure, Is nothing much to lose,
The infant child is not aware/It has been eaten by the bear.
And I am two-and-twenty, And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true
